As of April 15, 2019, runway 02/20 will be renovated at JadeWeser Airport, Wilhelmshaven. The measure is expected to take 6-7 weeks. In order to minimize the restrictions on general aviation and local companies, authorities, clubs and private pilots, limited flight operations should be possible during construction. For this purpose, the renovation is divided into 5 phases, each of which is associated with its own flight restrictions / options.
