The institute of transport science developed together with the Cologne/Bonn Airport a feasibility study of an air taxi infrastructure at the airport. The results of the study were presented in a press conference on the 22th of Juli in the Terminal 2 of the Cologne/Bonn Airport. The conference was attended by the CEO of the airport Johan Vanneste as well as the Minister of Transport of North Rhine-Westphalia Hendrik Wüst. The feasibility study was funded by the Federal Ministry of Transport and Digital Infrastructure.
Unfortunately we had to take note of the sad news that Mr. Peter Wolf passed away on 15.08.2020. For many years, Mr. Wolf was a professor at the Institute of Transport Sciences in the teaching and research field of airport and air traffic. Our deepest sympathy goes to his family.
