I don't think u quite understood the article. They're only closing the airport for 5hours on a Friday night. Saturday which is also Shabbat it runs normally. Not to mention the 5hours that it's closed there will be construction going on which ofcourse is not allowed on Shabbat. Not aure where u see anything that benefits ultra-orthodox people in that.
