Airports are infrastructures that are subject to constant change. Again and again, it is necessary to carry out small repairs and maintenance work in order to ensure all airport operations run safely and without disruption.
Over the last years the almost 60-year-old runway 15/33 at Salzburg Airport had to be partly renovated over and over again, causing enormous costs. Since this procedure can no longer be repeated for safety reasons, a general refurbishment of the runway is now inevitable.
In order to ensure a thorough and general refurbishment ot the 60-year-old runway, the airport will be closed for air traffic from April 24th 2019 until May 28th 2019. In this way very noisy works can be performed during daytime. Closing the airport during this period of time allows for an excellent quality of execution and for a longer operating life. The method chosen for renovating the runway is the safest way to help protect the population from noise during nighttime.
In the case of major construction or renovation projects, the progress of the work will be documented on this page. As at all airports around the world, annual maintenance work is carried out on the runways, aprons, and taxiways at Salzburg Airport.
To ensure that the flight operations run smoothly from 6 am to 11 pm, much of this work is scheduled during the evening and overnight hours.
Of course, we always have a contact person available to respond to your questions or complaints. You can be assured of receiving a prompt reply.
The next major construction project is scheduled for 2019: general renovations to the airport runways. Project-related information will be provided.
