fixing EGKK (removing runway 26R)

Are the airport developers out there planning on removing 26R?

We’ve discussed this in the past, but have decided that 26R will remain.

Although it isn’t used on a daily basis at Gatwick, it is still an active runway used when 26L isn’t active (maintenance, emergencies, etc.), and it is best to categorise it as a runway within IF.

Hope this answers your question :)

So how is it used in real life for taxing? Taxi on A, B M C etc or taxi 26th?

The runway should be kept because, well, it is on the airport schematics.
