DHL is ramping up operations at Leipzig/Halle, to which it started flying in 2005, and intends to turn it into a European hub with an investment of €300 million. It currently operates 14 daily frequencies at LEJ, most recently to Hamburg and Ljubljana, and handles approximately 160 tons of freight per day. Next year it plans to land 50 aircraft at the airport each night. It said the expansion will create around 3,500 jobs by 2012.
