www.acg.aero is now online but doesn't look very promising yet.
And Hahn airport is the end of the world, no highway going there, bad train connection, heavy snow during winter....Ryanair drivers know the place.
What I heard through the grapevine is that former LTU guys are running the show there but they are very reluctant to give any details about financing.

Two ex Air China 744 freighter conversions on lease from AAI apparently on their way.

Not been there for a while. Train connection is still there but disused since 1992. Heavy snow in winter just adds to the quaintness of the place! Call it character building. End of the world? Not really - it's 70 k from LUX and I thought the E42 ran right past by now? Great airport - Great people. Good Luck ACG.:)

HHN is indeed somewhat remote but the good thing about that is the 24/7 operation over there (no curfew!). Road connection is being greatly improved since the current 2-lane B50 is being upgraded to 4-lane expressway (some part have already been completed and opened). Works should finish sometime early 2009 which will cut down travelling time to FRA substantially.
The place can indeed receive a solid amount of snow during winter months but the Airport Authorities have invested millions of Euro's in probably the largest fleet of ultra-modern snow clearing equipment to be found anywhere in Europe. If you happen to stage through HHN just ask the Airport Authorities to tour their 'Winterdienst'storage facilities and you will be amazed!
Finally HHN's people are indeed a pleasure to work with. Always willing to help and they go out of their way to make you feel welcome. I would recommend it over FRA anytime!

I agree with every word from EHRD-0624.

HHN is an X american airforce base but since reverting to civil use it has grown and improved with every month. The service is second to none compared to FRA, everything is close to hand, so no long walks. All the airport staff are very friendly and helpfull.
Yes there are no trains to HHN at present but the structure is there, and as for the road, the E50 goes to LUX (70km) in one direction, and connects to the motorway A61/E31 in the other, most of which is 4 lanes.

Any news on ACG?
Has ACG commenced operations yet? I read today that HSH Nordbank, financiers to Avion Aircraft Trading who in turn are financing ACG's aircraft had been denied 20BN in emergency funding pending fullfilment of certain conditions from the German authorities.

These include restoring it's capital ratios and shifting "unsafe" assets such as exposure to Icelandic institutions into a "bad debt bank"....
