Austria's top court overturns ban on Vienna Airport runway work

VIENNA, June 29 (Reuters) - A ban on construction of Vienna Airport’s third runway was annulled by Austria’s Constitutional Court on Thursday.

It said an administrative court ruling blocking the expansion in February had “involved climate protection and land consumption in an unconstitutional way in its weighing of interests”. (Reporting by Kirsti Knolle; editing by Jason Neely)
