Development of airspace for German airports

New and changed runway structures at airports always require an adjustment to the surrounding airspace structure. When preparing the commissioning of the third runway at Munich Airport, real-time and fast-time simulations showed, for example, that the service provided to transit flights could be improved in the affected area by raising the division level, thus reducing delays. The goal is to further improve service quality in the coming years and link air traffic controller capacity optimally to demand.
