Due to the corona crisis, the construction project starts earlier than planned. There will be no flight operations at Stuttgart Airport during the early construction work from 6 to 22 April. Flights such as cargo flights with medical goods or rescue flights will be diverted during this phase.
Immediately following the early construction work, the partial renewal of the runway will take place in two phases, each lasting 28 days, starting on 23 April.
From 23 April to 20 May 2020, aircraft will have a runway shortened to a maximum of 1,965 meters. From 21 May to 17 June 2020, aircraft will take off and land on a runway that is expected to be 2,475 meters long. As of Thursday, 18 June 2020, the total length of the runway, i.e. 3,345 meters, will once again be available.
