Munich Airport calls for third runway

The Supervisory Board of FMG, the Munich Airport operating company, has welcomed the ruling in the planning permission process in favor of Munich Airport’s third runway, including the conditions for the protection of the airport’s neighbors and the surrounding region. The entire Supervisory Board, including the employee representatives, unanimously approved a statement calling for the prompt implementation of the planning approval decision. The process for a new runway is necessary to eliminate the capacity bottlenecks already arising today and steadily worsening and to enable the airport to cope with the traffic volume anticipated in the coming years, the board said. Additionally, the Supervisory Board stressed that FMG will finance the third runway with its own earnings, and will not require public funds to implement the project. The goahead is pending a review by the top Bavarian administrative court.
