Hannover Airport (IATA: HAJ, ICAO: EDDV) is the international airport of Hanover, capital of the German state of Lower Saxony. The ninth largest airport in Germany, it is in Langenhagen, 11 km north of Hanover. The airport has flights to European metropolitan and leisure destinations, and serves as a base for Eurowings, Condor, Corendon Airlines Europe and TUI fly Deutschland. Hannover Airport was opened in Langenhagen in 1952, replacing an old airfield within the city limits of Hanover. In 1973 two modern terminals were opened, which became famous because of their compact design. In 1998, the largest terminal, C, was opened to handle more passengers, adding 8 more boarding gates and 3 bus departure gates. Up to 33 aircraft can be handled simultaneously, of which 20 can use aircraft stands equipped with a Jetway. All three terminals are capable of handling a Boeing 747. From 1957 to 1990, the airport hosted the Internationale Luft- und Raumfahrtausstellung, Germany's largest air show.
