Bremen Airport renovates runway A

Bremen Airport in northern Germany will be renovating runway A from June 26, 2023. This should not affect flight operations. Eastbound machines will use taxiway C towards the runway during this time. 

First, they roll westwards and do a so-called "backtrack" - and then, after a rotation on the regular runway, initiate the take-off as usual. Small and medium-sized aircraft turn directly on the runway, large aircraft use the special "West" runway for their backtrack during this time, as they need a larger radius to turn, then taxi to the threshold of the regular runway and take off from there. The state aviation authority has approved this procedure and the municipality of Stuhr has also approved it.
