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. What the following map does not show are a further 205 planned runway extensions, 262 new terminals and 175 terminal extensions – in total more than 1200 airport infrastructure projects, often leading to noise and health issues, loss of homes, biodiversity and fertile lands – and always fueling the climate crisis.
