Milestone for TSB: Feasibility study for Munich Airport awarded

17. February 2020

The Transport System Bögl is an innovative system for local public transport and the ideal solution for transporting people around traffic hubs reliably, quickly and quietly. Munich Airport is now also pursuing the possibility of using the Bavarian magnetic levitation system.

On February 17, 2020, the award of the Munich Airport feasibility study marked the first step toward sustainable mobility. In addition to  Andreas Scheuer, German Transport Minister, and  Jost Lammers, CEO Munich Airport, Johann Bögl, chairman of the supervisory board Max Bögl, and Stefan Bögl, chairman of the board Max Bögl,  attended a press conference in Munich to discuss the projects potential and to inform about the awarding of the feasibility study.

“Germany is in a position to play an active role in shaping the global future of transportation technologies. In the field of urban and regional mobility, we see our Transport System Bögl as a leading international solution for efficient, quiet and flexible local transport in the cities of the future, their periphery and the connection of their mobility hubs. The feasibility study now commissioned at Munich Airport forms the basis for a first possible application route for this future-oriented local transport solution and is therefore a major milestone for the future success of German transport technologies,” explains Johann Bögl.

The studies will show how the project potential at Munich Airport will develop on a technical, ecological and economic level. In addition to a comparison with conventional means of transport such as the subway or regional trains, the project will examine and analyze the means of transport based on magnetic levitation technology in general application and specifically in the case of Munich Airport.
