The 2024 UEFA European Football Championship, commonly known as Euro 2024, will be hosted across 10 venues in Germany from June 14 to July 14, 2024.

This major sporting event will attract significant attention and is expected to lead to a substantial increase in business aviation traffic across Germany. The influx of business jets traveling for the tournament will likely cause congestion at key airports and create competition for ground services.

If you’re planning to attend Euro 2024 or be in Germany during this period, it’s crucial to start planning now, as ground services and airport slots will begin booking up quickly.

We strongly recommend working with an experienced Trip Support Provider and Ground Support Team to mitigate the risks associated with high congestion and ensure a smooth experience.

Here’s what you need to know:
