Munich Airport: Governing body calls for rapid implementation of third runway project

Germany's Flughafen München GmbH Supervisory Board welcomed (19-Sep-2011) the ruling in the planning permission process in favour of Munich Airport's third runway, including the conditions for the protection of the airport's neighbours and the surrounding region. The entire Supervisory Board unanimously approved a statement calling for the prompt implementation of the planning approval decision. "This course of action 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 airport said.
