A study commissioned by the government shows what local residents have been fighting for decades long. The new study was done after local emission measurements have shown constant both noise and air pollution in areas adjacent to the airport. PJFI has been often known as one of the tightest and crowded airports of any large international acting city. With planes being put on holding loop over the city, pollution has been present ever since the opening of it in 1961. ,,With official documents now proving our concerns this is a huge success for us” a local man said. Another nearby business owner voiced his concerns too: ,,This is horrible news for us. If the green-socialist eco freaks get their plans through in government and it will be relocated I can only imagine how this would hurt our business.” A study conducted in the early 1990s showed the cost of a potential upgrade of Futuria Airport, demoliton and developing of the current space occupied, at an estimated 28bn PSD. ,,We could do it, (…), although it’d be a massive project. We all know the current situation is not only bad but terrible. Current capacity is ridicously low and the pollution is also adding up to the problem”, a spokeswoman of the mayors office said. If the project were to be launched next year, it could be finished by 2023. Airport relocations have already been done in other countries.
