DHL Express claims to be more space to be able to handle larger aircraft. With larger machines, the number of nightly flights can be kept stable even if the freight volume is growing.
The fleet renewal would also accommodate residents near the airport, said Curti. The new machines are quieter and used less fuel. If the expansion does not come, you have to continue to fly with the existing, mostly smaller machines.
The planning approval process for the expansion of the airport had started in mid -November 2020. More than 6,500 objections have now been received by the responsible state directorate of Saxony. When a decision will be made is open.
