Hi everyone,

I don't know if this has already been discussed but I still don't know which airport will be used for the supporters to arrive who will be at the game.
As the game will be played in the Arena auf Schalke, Stadium of Football team Schalke 04 in Gelsenkirchen.

The problem is that Gelsenkirchen is surrounded by airports like:
- Koln - Bonn
- Dusseldorf
- Monchengladbach
- Dortmund
- ...

So if somebody has more info, please let us know.

Who of you planespotters will also be there?
I missed the final last year as I had to work but this year I will ceraintly be part of the party.
Hopefully we will have some nice exotic birds.

These are two pics of last year, just to remeber how many people came.

I am pretty sure that DTM and DUS will get the most traffic since they are closest. Also Mönchengladbach cannot accommodate larger planes.


Where have all the tri-jets gone...

I really hope it will be DUS as it has 2 terraces but don't you think DUS has to many slots.

CGN would be a good choice, as the airport is quite big, they have lots of stands for aircraft.

I don't think DTM will get that much traffic... The runway and the apron is very small, isn't it?

I'll maybe come up for a visit, still not sure yet.

regards, Florian

BTW: What to expect in term of traffic... Some L-1011s from Yes and / or Euro Atlantic would be nice, wouldn't it?  Smile

When we played UEFA cup at Arena Auf Schalke last year, the team flew to Oberhausen-Münster, so perhaps the teams will fly to there (though, I have absolutely NO idea as to where that airport is).

Of course, the fans is a whole different story - I think it's an advantage that they have so many airports, so the fans can be shipped to "their own" airport.

.. and for those who wants picture of "the best guests ever at Arena Auf Schalke": http://www.brondby.com/nyheder/nyheder/article1-2689.asp - I'm still impressed that we managed to get 2500 supports to drive the 10 hours to Gelsenkirchen for a midweek game Big grin

The problem from CGN would be that the public transport is not as good as from DUS or DTM. But I guess they could always schedule some extra trains up there.

If you are talking about FMO, Flughafen Müsnter/Osnabrück, it's right around the corner from where I live.
Quite nice place actually. Very modern.

I'm sure it will all run smoothly this year with it being in Germany, but what about next year?

The finals in Istanbul, Turkey in 2005. Has anyone got any info on the airports near Istanbul?

From what EDDL gave us it looks like most Portugese charters will land in Munster and French charters in Koln

I am sure much more others unecpected aircrafts will land at those airports as for example East African landed in MAN last year
