Frankfurt to reopen runway

[ May 18, 2021   //   ]

Frankfurt Airport is to reopen its northwest runway from 1 June in anticipation of a rise in aircraft movements this summer. There has already been a increase in recent weeks and if numbers continue to rise, the runway will be required to ensure operations continue to run smoothly and to avoid delays. Airport operator Fraport took the Northwest Runway out of service during the Covid pandemic between 23 March and 8 July 2020 and it was closed again from 14 December. It is currently employed as a temporary parking space for aircraft.
