Munich Airport Gets Green Light for Third Runway

The Munich Airport operating company, FMG, secured approval for the construction of a third runway at the airport. The approval was granted by the District Government of Upper Bavaria.


FMG CEO Dr Michael Kerkloh was quoted as having said that the expansion of Munich Airport to meet growing demand and the resulting increase in available flights and destinations will benefit the population and economy of Bavaria.


The planned third runway is deemed to provide Bavaria direct access to the world’s key markets and will generate new job opportunities to a growing workforce of 30,000 employees, making it the largest workplace in Bavaria.


The passenger volume in Munich Airport has increased substantially since it first opened its doors in 1992. Last year, the passenger volume at the airport reached an estimated 35 million passengers and carried out 390,000 take-offs and landings. Munich Airport now caters to over 220 destinations in 68 countries around the world.
