Hannover Airport (HAJ) is the ninth-largest airport in Germany, handling 5.8 million passengers in 2017. The incident sparked a major security alert. "A man broke through a barrier in a vehicle which went onto the runway", Hanover police wrote on Twitter. A quick test showed blood levels of cocaine and amphetamine. Police said they couldn't give further information on where he came from because he wasn't carrying an identity card. At least several flights have been diverted from the airport or delayed.
Take-offs and landings of planes are suspended while police investigated. Around 20:05 local time, the airport resumed its work.
According to Eurocontrol, the airport remains closed until approximately 22:00 UTC.
