10JUL20 / 0600Z - Friday Night Flight: Turkish in West Africa

This week will include a singular busy hub. It is vital that the descent planning of pilots is done correctly so that traffic can be managed. For help with this, head to our User Guide:

This week we give our attention to Turkish Airlines in West Africa. The airline has a huge presence there, both from cargo and mainline flights. These flights operate from the new LTFM airport, or if a cargo route, from the old LTBA airport. Both these airports will be open this week, with LTBA only open for cargo operations.

Airports across West Africa will all be flown to by Turkish, either directly or via a stop in one of the other established airports. These airports are smaller than usual, however, make up for it in unique locations and scenery. Please enjoy this week and explore all that West Africa has to offer.

Please be aware that all aircraft must use the established STARs when flying into the HUB airports. Aircraft will not be given access to the airspace without these. VFR flying is not permitted at these airports.

My Plan:

KIAH-LTFM in the Turkish 777W

There was a bug with the arrival board, so it always said 0 even though there might’ve been 200. It’s fixed now.
