Hey, I am wondering what are these circles before the gate?
It’s an angle to come into for your nose gear to follow to align with the taxiway to pull into the gate at a good angle.
Adding on to Asher’s point, they can also be used for pushback (not all aircraft, though).
U can find these often at Asian airports. Typically its used for widebodies in the case for this image. But they are also used for some medium size gates as well.
yes this image is quite helpful and self explanatory.
Fancy arrows 😍
yeah they are; that is why i got so fascinated by seeing them.
