There will be no flights between 11 o’clock at night and five in the morning at Frankfurt Airport, after a German court upheld the ban on journeys during the night.

The Federal Administrative court in Leipzig made the ruling after 17 unauthorised night time flights were allowed by the state of Hesse without proper consultation when Frankfurt airport was expanded.

Operators of Europe’s third busiest hub say flights are needed during this time for cargo and to prevent Frankfurt losing out to rival airports.

The decision will come as good news to people living closeby and under the flightpath. At regular Monday protests, they have been calling for the banned hours to be extended and the new runway to be shutdown.
