The European Commission (Commission) has approved aid for two German national airports, Münster/Osnabrück and Kassel-Calden. The Commission has approved the aid, as it falls within the Community Guidelines on the financing of airports and start up airlines. Under the scheme, Kassel airport will receive state aid of €114 million which will be used to extend the runway and build a new terminal. Münster airport will receive aid of €60 million, made up of €49 million from an increase in the public shareholding of the airport operator and an €11 million grant from the regional government. This aid will also be used to extend the runway and build a new terminal. In both cases, the Commission found that the measures were compatible with the Community's 2005 Guidelines on the financing of airports.
