Frankfurt-Hahn Airport (HHN) in Rhineland-Palatinate has filed for insolvency. Due to the critical situation, there had been speculation about this possible step for some time. In passenger traffic, the airport is mainly served by Ryanair. The operating company is 82.5 percent owned by the Chinese HNA Group. 17.5 percent is held by the state of Hesse. Financial revenues had slumped significantly since 2020 as a result of the Corona crisis.
SENATOR INTERNATIONAL set the course at an early stage. The current "SAB" flight schedule with self-controlled flights continues to run stably and safely. Due to the unclear outlook at Frankfurt-Hahn, 65% of flights have already been transferred to Frankfurt-Main Airport (FRA) as a precautionary measure. Operations at Frankfurt-Hahn are currently continuing.
In addition to the detour to FRA, SENATOR has developed an emergency plan. This will be implemented in the short term if further measures become necessary. Flight operations and flight schedule remain fully stable and safe.
