Aeronautical Study of ICAO Code E Aircraft Operations
Berlin Tegel Airport
The number of ICAO Code E aircraft (A330, A340, B777, B747) operating at Berlin Tegel airport has increased and this process will continue until the airport closure.
To ensure that operational safety for these aircraft types is not compromised, the airport operator contracted airsight to conduct an aeronautical study of the airside areas at risk.
The study included the detailed analysis of the relevant infrastructure, such as the width of taxiways (main gear clearance), the clearances between taxiing and parking aircraft and objects (wing tip clearance), as well as the runway and taxiway shoulders and strips.
