Congratulations for this hard-won victory for VIE. It’s really no easy feat for any airport in a mature democracy to scure any major expansions these days, LHR springing to mind :lol:

Congratulations! Although one of the sets of taxiways seems to really go out of the way.
Why is flying so expensive? And why is flying well so much more?

My guess is it will be to provide enough clearance for aircraft taking off or landing on 11L/29R. As the point at which the taxiway is furthest to the left lines up neatly with the runway.

I imagine that would allow simultaneous usage of the two runways without having to sequence traffic crossing an active runway.

And looking to the bottom and bottom left of the image it looks like the plan contains noise mitigation berms for the nearest villages.

Anyways, if they've followed the proper procedure and done it in an ethical fashion then cool.

Next step taken: three citizen initiatives appealed the before mentioned ruling of the administrative court of justice via the constitutional court of justice. But again (october 4th) the ruling was pro-airport. The court denied the appeales. The third runway is one step closer.

It's good news for VIE, but I have a hard time understanding both new sets of taxiways shapes.

Fantastic news, nice to see common sense prevail against those eco-talibans.

That said, to me the current situation at VIE seems like a bubble that's getting ready to burst at some point in the future. Too many players at the moment.

The huge spacing between the runways looks future proofed for signicant terminal expansion. The exisitng terminal is a bit of a mess, the newer Terminal 3 is pretty nice but very crowded.

Good news from VIE!

Question: is the airport limited in terms of peak hour operations with the present configuration of two runways? I always had the impression that depending on wind they are able to operate them very efficiently in several non-crossing traffic configurations for landings and take-offs.
