Although nightly takeoffs and landings are prohibited at Frankfurt Airport, there have been an increasing number of exceptions in recent months. That is why the demand for an increase in landing charges is getting louder after 11 pm.
In Hamburg, for example, airlines pay a surcharge of 550 percent to midnight, and then even 700 percent.
‘There were a total of 1,144 night flights in 2017, against 806 in the year before. No improvement is in sight.’
