10th Anniversary Of The DUS Airport Fire

Wed Apr 12, 2006 1:30 am

10 years ago on April 11th, 1996, a fire destroyed two Terminals of DUS, killing 17 people and injuring 88. After this fire, the airport was completely rebuilt and is now one of the safest in Europe in terms of fire safety.

This tragic day should not be forgotten, because a lot of failures lead to the death of the 17 people, who died in elevators, lounges and toilet rooms.
