In cooperation with the Environmental Justice Atlas we are currently elaborating a map where you can explore how airport projects create different kinds of conflicts around the world. Find it here soon.
Currently 423 new airports are planned or under construction. 223 of these are in the Asian-Pacific region alone and 58 in Europe. Additional runways thought to number 121 worldwide (28 in Europe) are also planned or under construction. Residents are protesting many of these projects for a multitude of reasons, thus the realisation of these plans is still contested. What the following map does not show are a further 205 planned runway extensions, 262 new terminals and 175 terminal extensions.
