Runway 27 in use.
The largest aircraft allowed into Poprad is the B767.
Please tune into tower before starting up the engines, so if needed the controller can ask you to hold position due to the airport layout.

Departure procedures:

Request departure from the gate with your engines running and ready to go, tower will either give you a:

  • Hold position command (you should stay parked at your gate awaiting further instructions)
  • Or a continue taxi command (you should taxi to the runway and hold short)

Expect a takeoff clearence prior to reaching the hold short bar. Depart as quickly as possible.

Arrival procedures:

Land normally and backtaxi the runway as quickly as possible.
Leave the runway and taxi to the gates expeditiously.

*Center acting as approach - what to expect?

Due to the absense of an approach frequency at LZTT, the Bratislava Center controller will provide approach service to LZTT. Once you’re below FL180, you can request an approach normally like if you were on approach frequency and the controller will provide you with vectors to final.

We’re looking forward to seeing you there!


Really hoping to see some of you there as it’s a sublime approach 😍
