Living lab of sustainable aviation and new forms of mobility

Twente Airport is part of Technology Base and contributes to excellent accessibility from the eastern Netherlands to the rest of Europe. Flying via charter or private jet provides time savings and effectiveness. In addition to business flying, there is recreational flying by members of the Vliegclub Twente and the Twentsche Zweefvliegclub.

The well-maintained and long runway, the large open space, the existing infrastructure, the relatively quiet airspace and sufficient capacity on the electricity network for charging several electric aircraft, makes it possible to stimulate sustainable aviation.

The 220-acre site is fully fenced off, guaranteeing safe testing and experimentation, and has various indoor and outdoor test facilities. Thanks in part to these facilities, Twente Airport occupies a central position in the Netherlands as an incubator and test facility for more sustainable aviation and new forms of mobility.
