Extraordinary flight operations on 1 August 2023


On the evening of Swiss National Day, aircraft approaching from the North will land on runway 14 or 16 by way of exception.

As in the past years, evening restrictions for aircraft approaching and departing through German airspace will be lifted by way of exception on 1 August this year, owing to fireworks being let off. In accordance with the German ordinance, aircraft arriving from the East would have to land on runway 28 from 21:00. 

Following consultation with the relevant German authorities, this rule has been waived for the evening of Swiss National Day. From 21:00 until the end of flight operations, aircraft will therefore approach from the North and land on runways 14 or 16. Until 22:00, aircraft will depart towards the West and South, and from 22:00 towards the North. 

Deviations may occur at any time and at short notice, depending on weather conditions.
