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.
Some more info:
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.
