Stuttgart has its own airport, and it is well served for a city that is outside the main air traffic hubs. For budget flights one of Germany's main carriers, German Wings, now runs one of its central hubs out of Stuttgart, offering flights to and from major international cities like London, Madrid, Warsaw and Rome. The airport is also well served by Stuttgart's public transport system, and also the rail system, making it very accessible. It takes less than 30 minute to reach the airport by S-Bahn from the city centre. The train system also connects the airport up to the ICE network, making for fast links to cities like Munich and Hamburg.
Stuttgart is an international airport located approximately 8 miles south of the city centre of Stuttgart. Cheapest way to get into the city and to reach the airport is the "S-Bahn", which takes about 30 minutes from the city and is about 3 EUR.

Stuttgart's airport is located about 20min. outside the city, directly on the Autobahn A8 Stuttgart - Munich. The metro (S-Bahn) drives into the the city center every 30 minutes.
The airport is a lot smaller than Frankfurt and most international flights arrive and depart in Terminal 1 where the train station is also located. By the way this terminal has a great architecture and the design has won several architectural design prizes.
Stuttgart has become the southern German hub for 2 Budget Airlines in 2003, now we can fly to destinations all over Europe at prices starting at 19 Euro one way.
If you have free time between flights, the Albatros Flight museum is worth a visit, you can see rare old planes like a JU 52.
You can even have a great dinner directly in the airport, the restaurant "Top Air" is the only airport restaurant in Germany rated with a star by Michelin.
The airport hotel is run by the Moevenpick Group.
The Stuttgart international airport (SGT) may be small compared to Frankfurt's, but it is served by most major domestic and international airlines. It's also conveniently close to the city (13km/8mi). A 30-minute train ride will take you right downtown. Frequent train service connects Stuttgart to all major German and many international cities, as well as to smaller, regional destinations. Buses are a cheaper if slower option, and if you're daring enough to try out the Autobahn, two major routes pass the city.
Parking around the airport is very expensive and a huge major rip-off!!! There parking calculator is worthless and they pretty much tell you on the site that they are taking no responisibility for th information. We just were charged 50€ for 2 days and 9 hours in the PO parking garage. This is the furthest away and is not covered. Don't park at the airport. The parking site also states that the Movenpick parking lot has a fee of 38 euro for a week. Hello! NOT. We were charged 80 something for 4 days.

Eating at the Stuttgart airport
So you are hungry at the Stuttgart airport and don't want to pay a premium for mediocre food?
Try Treiber, the bakery where the flight attendants and pilots buy their food. They sell good fresh sandwiches and everything else a typical Stuttgart bakery sells. You also get a good coffee. They sell at prices like they are selling everywhere else in Stuttgart.
Location: Terminal 3, Level 2, next to the car rentals. It's at the arrival level of Terminals 1 and 3.
If you are flying from stuttgart: it's one level below the checkins. It's before you go through the security checks. After the security checks you pay double for half of the value.
Want to eat something else? Find something *before* you go through the security checks.
Stylish restaurants are "Red Baron" and the "Panorama".
By the way: to get from or the the Stuttgart City, use the S-Bahn S2 or S3, whichever comes first.
