The Eisenhüttenstadt airfield is a commercial airfield northeast of the Pohlitz district, which belongs to the municipality of Siehdichum . It is located on the B 112 between Eisenhüttenstadt and Frankfurt (Oder) .
The airfield is approved for aircraft up to a maximum take-off weight of 8 to MTOW.
In 1999 the building concept for the new flight control / handling / office building as well as the tower was developed by an architectural office based in Frankfurt (Oder) . Construction work began that same year and lasted until spring 2001. In December 1999, the Nigerian President landed during his visit to Eisenhüttenstadt and the EKO . 
A modern filling station for AVGAS and JET A1 was built in 2000 to refuel the aircraft. The new company building was inaugurated in spring 2001. As the first external company, Spreeflug GmbH from Fürstenwalde opened an office on the airfield , which among other things offers charter flights and training for private pilot licenses . Furthermore, in 2001 a hangar was built for the storage of all kinds of aircraft.
On September 28, 2002, the film "Lights" by director Hans-Christian Schmied was shot. On September 18, 2006, the first airship landed on the airfield. On the way from Poznań to Kamenz , the passports of the pilots were checked by the federal police . To visit the Eisenhüttenstadt steelworks “Arcelor Mittal” (EKO), the Chairman of the ArcelorMittal Board of Management , Lakshmi Mittal , landed at the airfield on September 22nd, 2006 .
By 2007 three more hangars were built. The last hangar was completed in November 2007. Since then, all pilots have had the option of hangaring their aircraft.
Since May 2017, a receiver for FLARM signals has also been installed on the airfield, which offers added value, especially for gliders. By connecting to the Open Glider Network (OGN), the recipient contributes to opening up the previously existing reception gap between Berlin and Görlitz.
There is a petrol station at the airport, which is operated by the operator of the airport. JET A1 and AVGAS 100LL fuels are available at the filling station .
