Airport is against growth boundaries
Eindhoven Airport is against growth boundaries. In 2020, the airport reaches the largest number of permissions that are allowed (43,000 per year).
By the end of 2019, a decision on the future of the largest regional airport in the Netherlands must be made. Van Geel aims to advise with the largest support in the department.
