Hire a Private Jet to or from Eindhoven Airport

Approximately 228,000 of the 2.5 million residents of the Dutch province North Brabant live in Eindhoven. Located on the western outskirts of the city, 4.7 million passengers take off or land by commercial airline or private jet at Eindhoven Airport on over 32,000 flights every year. The airport is located only 15 kilometres from Eindhoven’s city centre, making it an ideal location for business travellers who appreciate a quick connection. Even more conveniently, a business centre is located in the airport building.

Eindhoven Airport History

Eindhoven Airport opened in 1932. Like many other European airports, it served military purposes during the Second World War, with a part of the grounds continuing to serve as a base for the Royal Netherlands Air Force today. In this context, the airport is also known as Welschap Airfield or Eindhoven Air Base.

However, the greater part of the airport has been used for civilian aircraft since the 1980s, requiring several renovations of the airport through to 2005. Among the improvements was a new departure hall, servicing flight routes used by both commercial and charter aircraft.
