The airport as a competitive advantage

Business aviation has traditionally been of great importance to Viessmann and is more important today than ever. On the one hand, the internationalisation of the company has progressed considerably in recent years. On the other hand, the commercial airport compensates for the inadequate connection of the region to the long-distance transport network.
