Düsseldorf Airport Car Rental
Düsseldorf Airport is the third most important airport all over Germany and is one of the main hubs of Lufthansa.
The idea of building an airport to serve the city of Düsseldorf began to circulate among the civil authorities already in the early XX century. The airport was opened in 1927, only two years after the start of its construction.
During the Second World War it was used by the German armed forces and immediately after the end of the war by the allied forces, returning under the control of West Germany only in 1950.
Nowadays, among the airlines working here, we can mention Lufthansa and Alitalia: the first one covers the routes to Munich and Frankfurt, the second one guarantees connections to Milan and Rome.
