On Wednesday night, locals of Skoke in Miklavž na Dravskem polju confirmed six resolutions, with which they voiced their disagreement with the scheduled expansion of the Edvard Rusjan Maribor airport.

They emphasized that they do not oppose the airport, but the unnecessary and environmentally disputed expansion.

The airport should remain as it is and it should be developed according to its current capabilities, are demanding the locals of Skoke, who are concerned about the expansion and how will it affect the quality of life in places right next to the airport.

The situation about the cargo traffic has been only a speculation. The estimated quantity has changed and lowered. Alenka Bratušek said at the ministerial hearing, that the project was designed as a freight airport

The locals do not agree with the further building on their agricultural land, with any kind of forest clearing and limitation and even relocation of the sports airport. Constant take-offs of large planes are supposed to cause contamination with harmful micro dust.
