Frankfurt–Hahn Airport (German: Flughafen Frankfurt-Hahn, IATA: HHN, ICAO: EDFH) is an international airport located 10 km (6.2 mi) from the town of Kirchberg and 20 km (12 mi) from the town of Simmern in the Rhein-Hunsrück district of Rhineland-Palatinate to the west of central Germany.
Despite the name, the airport is about equidistant between Frankfurt and Luxembourg – about 120 km (75 mi) to each city by road. It is closer to the German cities of Koblenz at about 70 km (43 mi) and Mainz at about 90 km (56 mi). The airport officially changed the name from Hahn to Frankfurt–Hahn at the same time as Ryanair started flying there. In 2002 Lufthansa took out legal proceedings against Ryanair, claiming the usage of “Frankfurt” in the airport’s name to be deceptive advertising, however Lufthansa lost; in a similar case regarding another airport name Ryanair lost. Until 2009 the airport was owned by Fraport, which also operates Frankfurt Airport. In 2016 Frankfurt Hahn Airport served 2.60 million passengers slightly down from 2.66 million in 2015.
