Night Ban for Frankfurt Airport Upheld

On Wednsesday the administrative court in Leipzig upheld the provisional night ban for the Frankfurt Airport, a ban that was originally put into place last October.  The ban ensures that no flights will take off or land between 11:00 pm and 5:00 am and was put into place due to the complaints from people living near the airport.  The ban leaves room for airlines to offer flights at night if they can prove there is a special need for the service

The ban on night flights brings a hard blow to airlines operating freight services and hardest hit is Lufthansa, which has determined that they will lose 40 million euros in earnings each year..  So far 17 flights have been affected by the ban, but the court ruled that another 133 flights that take off and land between 10:00 and 11:00 pm and 5:00 and 6:00 am will also be examined to determine how much noise they cause.
