Stuttgart - Originally, the commission was supposed to vote on the new route on November 2nd and then make a recommendation to the Federal Air Traffic Control Authority.

From the departure route to the south proposed by the airlines Lufthansa and Eurowings, some municipalities would be less exposed to noise, while others would be more.

The mayors of the municipalities on the Fildern were present at the switch, along with local members of the state and Bundestag, transport minister Winfried Hermann (Greens) and representatives of the airlines and German air traffic control.

From the circle of the municipalities the request had come to commission an expert opinion on the total noise pollution from air, car and rail traffic.

A group of experts should now quickly clarify whether such an expert opinion can be drawn up at all.

The country offered to cover a third of the costs.

If the aircraft noise commission agrees in the new year to recommend the new departure route, there should initially be a trial run of at least one year. Commission head Christof Bolay, who is also mayor of the city of Ostfildern, had proposed such a test operation. According to this, only two flights per hour should initially depart on this route. During the test, the measured values ​​should be collected and then compared with the model calculations. Bolay had recently spoken out in favor of the new departure route.

Several citizens' groups wanted to prevent the route from being changed.

In an online petition, they are calling, among other things, for the route change to be stopped and for more transparency in the process.

The country then intervened as a moderator, even if it has nothing to decide in the process.

In future, all affected municipalities are to be more closely involved in the discussions of the commission, said the spokeswoman.
