After jumping through many hoops including five on-site inspections, 41 days of hearings and an intensive review, the Munich Airport is delighted to move forward with development for a third runway.  

“This is an extremely important signal for the future development of Munich Airport," said Dr. Michael Kerkloh, the Chairman and CEO of FMG, the Munich Airport operating company. "The ruling underscores the fact that our planning, including the extensive measures taken to protect people and nature, have stood up to an exacting review by an independent court. As a result, Munich Airport still has the opportunity to handle the projected traffic growth in the coming years and maintain its position among Europe's major air transportation hubs."
