Re: Small airports with 24 hour commercial ops

Nuremberg NUE has 24h operation. During winter season there are only very few landings and sometimes no departures between 0000 and 0600, but in summer time there can be quite a few night time take offs and landings. Also some cargo aircraft do operate at that time quite regularly.
