Solid foundation for continuous development

As Sitecore lead agency, netzkern maintains all websites of the airport and also planned, designed, and developed the web special for the 90th jubilee. With parallax effects, multi media, and contemporary witnesses, the special connects tradition and modernity into tangible history.
Since 2016, we are the digital lead agency of the airport Düsseldorf and ensure continuous imporvements of their Sitecore-based websites, first of all Behind the easy-to-use and service-strong, a complex system integration is hidden. Sitecore serves as integration platform and content management system at the same time. Sitecore is also used for storytelling and corporate publishing: The online magazine DUSmomente ( provides exciting stories from the airport.

Jubilee Special

Our Sitcore experts plan, design and launched new offers like the web special for the airport jubilee. The event module was built in Sitecore and can be maintained by the editors even though it features three parallax layers. The goal was to achieve a connection between tradition and modernity, strategic as well as creatively. Users are taken on a journey through 90 years of airport history. Many videos, images, and reports of contemporary witnesses encourage to take-off into the past and reminisce the development of North Rhine-Westphalia's most important traffic hub. The editors of DUS Online can easily re-use and adapt the module for future events or specials.

One example of behind the scenes improvements is the re-thought and re-designed landing fee calculator that netzkern build as an extranet application for the airport. This particular solution enables airlines to calculate their landing fees individually and thus improve their planning ability. The basis consists of various parameters and a bonus system. Moreover, netzkern developed an API for the airport app "Passngr". "Passengr" is a joint project of several airports. Holidaymakers and frequent fliers receive all relevant information of the three participating airports in a single app - straightforward and convenient.
„As one of Germany's leading airports, we want to lead with our digital experience and travel comfort. This is not limited to current information about flights and the airport but also includes online services like the convenient booking of parking via the website or one of our popular airport tours. netzkern convinced us right from the pitch with tremendous passion and ultimative know-how.“
