Flughafen Lahr



Flughafen Lahr (formerly marketed as Black Forest Airport Lahr) is a privately owned and operated commercial airport located in Lahr, Germany, which itself is located in the eponymous Black Forest. It is used for general aviation and freight transport.

History

The airport occupies the site of the former Canadian Forces Base Lahr, a Canadian military base that served as one of the headquarters of Canadian Forces Europe during the Cold War. It was operated primarily as an air force base before the Royal Canadian Air Force was unified with other branches into the Canadian Forces. The military base was closed in 1994 with the end of the Cold War, and the site converted to civilian use.
