It is rare to see an airport closed for such a long time. Necessary work will be done. They will consist in particular in renovating the entire wearing course of the track as well as that of the beginnings of the access ramps, the installation of new, more energy-efficient LED beaconing. The runway will be completely closed to air traffic from Tuesday March 14 to Friday April 14.
During the renovation work on the track, which will take place over several weeks between the February 27 and May 21
Three main criteria led us to choose this period of complete closure:
- the relatively low level of traffic at this time of year at the junction between the winter and summer aeronautical seasons
- a period before the spring school holidays in Strasbourg in order to penalize our customers, companies and travelers as much as possible;
- the a priori milder weather at the end of winter in order to reduce the risk of the work being extended due to bad weather.
Strasbourg Airport will take advantage of this period of traffic interruption to carry out, at the same time in the terminal, work to bring the hold baggage control systems up to standard and to reorganize check-in area A and the filter inspection.
