Cooperation on further Development of AirCargo Facilities at Leipzig-Halle Airport

Dietz AG to build new AirCargo Center by 2014

(lifePR) (Leipzig, ) Dietz AG, Bensheim, and Flughafen Leipzig/Halle GmbH have agreed to engage in long-term cooperation for the further development of general air cargo at Leipzig-Halle Airport.

ACC AirCargo Center Leipzig GmbH, a subsidiary of Dietz Group, will develop an area of approximately 60,000 square meters of the declared available land with direct apron access in the south cargo area. It is expected that the first construction phase of a new AirCargo Centre, with an area of approximately 23,000 square metres, will be completed by the first quarter of 2014, according to the latest building and security standards. A further 15,000 square metres of air cargo areas will be built in the second construction phase, to be completed by the end of 2018.

"This cooperation underlines the potential of Leipzig/Halle Airport to establish itself as the leading air cargo facility after Frankfurt am Main and to further consolidate and extend that position with a strong partner," says Dr. Wolfgang Dietz, Chairman of the Executive Board of Dietz AG, regarding his company's involvement in the Leipzig/Halle site.

Dietz AG is an owner-managed property company which invests primarily in German airports and is one of the largest private owners of air cargo areas in Germany. The group's portfolio includes the AirCargo Centres at Hanover and Berlin Airport and several properties at Frankfurt Airport, including the so-called Animal Lounge of Lufthansa Cargo AG.
