Higher Administrative Court Allows Partial Use of Extended Runway

Frankfurt-Hahn Airport, January 26, 2006. In a further rush decision, the Higher Administrative Court of Rhineland-Palatinate in Coblenz allowed on January 23, 2006, an amendment from Frankfurt-Hahn Airport – independent of the pending main proceedings – to use a part of the ex-tended runway, insofar as this requires no further clearing of land. The partial length of 3,500 meters in the secondary direction and 3,300 meters in the main direction may now be used. Frankfurt-Hahn Airport is thus submitting an application to the civil aviation authorities in charge – Landesbetrieb Straßen und Verkehr Rheinland-Pfalz – for an operating permit to use the new section, which is expected sometime next week. In the main proceedings, the use of the entire runway extension of 3,800 me-ters is still awaiting a decision, which depends on the lawsuit brought by BUND environmental organization on the subject of the barbastelle bat.
