Long Description:

There's the 'Bodensee Airport', a minor international airport and southernmost airport in Germany, located in Friedrichshafen, Baden-Württemberg, Germany

The Bodensee-Airport is the southernmost airport in Germany and was established in 1915 with the construction of the first hangars. The first scheduled passenger flights with the Zeppelin started from here, long before they were relocated to Frankfurt/Zeppelinheim.
Friedrichshafen saw its first scheduled passenger flights in 1929 with Deutsche Luft Hansa services to Stuttgart. After World War II, there were no successful attempts to reestablish regional flights until 1978, when Delta Air started flights to Stuttgart and Zürich. Between 1988 and 1994, the airport saw the construction of a new infrastructure, including a new terminal building and runway. Another new terminal has been inaugurated in 2010.

Friedrichshafen's home carrier InterSky announced to shut down their key route to Cologne Bonn Airport, which it operated for seven years, by October 2010 due to the tough competition by Germanwings that started the same route a few months earlier in spring 2010. However, by 14 June 2015, Germanwings ceased their route between Friedrichshafen and Cologne again as well. On 5 November 2015, the airport's home carrier InterSky ceased all operations due to financial difficulties, leading to the termination of the domestic connections to Berlin, Hamburg, Cologne and Düsseldorf. In December 2015, it has been announced that the airport might need financial support by its majority owners - the city of Friedrichshafen and the surrounding county - as the shutdown of InterSky as its largest customer led to financial difficulties. Also in December 2015, VLM Airlines announced to base three aircraft in Friedrichshafen to take over the domestic routes to Berlin, Düsseldorf and Hamburg previously provided by bankrupt InterSky.
