From May 1, 2021, Munich Airport will handle all air traffic via the northern runway. The reason for this is that the southern runway is being completely refurbished. This should last until July 31, 2021.

Start of the second phase of the renovation work on the four-kilometer-long and 60-meter-wide southern runway at Munich Airport: After 180 square meters of concrete had already been replaced, cables replaced and concrete joints refurbished in the summer of last year, further work will begin on May 1st on concrete and asphalt surfaces on the program. In addition, curves on the taxiways will be widened and maintenance measures will be carried out on the approach lights.

The airport is thus taking advantage of the low utilization of rail capacity due to the pandemic and is expected to completely block the southern runway for construction work until July 31, 2021. During this time, traffic is handled exclusively via the northern runway. Since the work can take place during the day, the airport benefits from a significant reduction in costs and a shortening of the repair time. The fire station south remains fully manned and ready for use even during the renovation work.
