The airfield Kiel (also referred to as Kiel-Holtenau) is a landing field in Kiel. It is located seven kilometers north of Kiel city center. The airfield was used militarily since its creation and was since 1958 a base of naval aviation. By mid-2012, the Naval Aviation Squadron 5 (MFG 5) was stationed here. It is known for the search and rescue operations (SAR), which were carried out from Holtenau with Sea King helicopters. In the second half of 2012 (June to November), the squadron moved to the Nordholz air base. At the airfield Kiel is the air sports club Kiel e. V. resident, an association for the exercise of air sports with various types of aircraft, the Academic Aviation Group of Christian-Albrechts-University Kiel, which operates gliding, the charter airline FLM Aviation, a helicopter service and an aircraft shipyard. Furthermore, ambulance flights and target air traffic for the Bundeswehr are handled via Kiel-Holtenau. In addition, every year in May, the “Internationalen Flugtage” take place, where aerobatic flights, gliding demonstrations and parachute jumps are performed and historic aircraft are issued.
In 2017, the Alliance demanded that the city make a referendum on the further existence of the state square and collected the required number of signatures. The council meeting of the state capital Kiel has decided to have the referendum held parallel to the local elections in Schleswig-Holstein on May 6, 2018. The question is: "Are you in favor of closing the Holtenau airfield and instead developing a new mixed-use district with as much as possible municipal and non-profit housing and trade on the site?" The referendum ended with 29.7% for yes and 70.3 % for no.
