Saarbrucken Airport Car Rental

Saarbrucken Airport Basics.....

Saarbrücken Airport (SCN) is located near the city of Saarbrücken and handles over 500,000 passengers per year.  Saarbrucken is located in Saarland and is its capital. The city used to be a very important industrial area which included production of  machinery, construction materials, steel and iron. However, over the many years, industry has declined and mining hasn't been any help to the local economy.  A German town, because it's close to the French border and was controlled by France at different times in history, it retains a French influence.
