Based on the analysis of the airport’s actual accessibility by means of public transport and the socio-economic parameters in the catchment area, numerous proposals for the improvement of long- and short-distance train connections to and from Leipzig/Halle Airport were elaborated. In addition, suggestions for long-distance and regional bus transport were prepared. In the final work package propositions for an improved information of travelers and the design of applicable ticket fares were made.
