Germany's Fraport AG announced (21-Aug-09) the Hesse Adminstrative High Court approved its EUR4 billion expansion plans at Frankfurt Airport, which include a fourth runway, a third terminal building and a larger cargo and maintenance centre. According to the airport owner, the plans are currently "fully on schedule", with the new Runway Northwest still scheduled to open for its Winter 2011 timetable. The Court also upheld its previous ruling on night time operations, with the airport only to allow 17 flights between 2300 and 0500, down from a previous 40. [more]
