Justice orders the end of flights over Brussels

The Brussels government and several municipalities of the capital, and with them their residents, won their case against Brussels Airport: the judge supports the complainants.

This means that no more night flights over Brussels are allowed on the Ring and Canal routes, and that the operation of the landings on runway 01 must be ended. All within 4 months, under  a penalty payment of 100,000 euros per week.

The judge also follows the complainants and orders the State to carry out, at its own expense, a study of the impact of the national airport and its impact, as well as possible alternatives. This study should be carried out within 12 months.
