Gate Hold In Effect - What Do I Do?

I’m currently waiting to pushback at EGLL, but a gate hold is in effect. From basic knowledge, I know I should stay at my gate. The problem is, I don’t know how long. Is there a way to know? Thanks guys!

As long as they say

Will they tell me when it’s ok to request pushback?

Yes they should

Request pushback. The controller will tell you to hold position, and inform you to push when they’re ready.


Ok, thanks! This can be closed.


Or, you could make it easier on the controller and just wait for the atis update message to be sent :)

The controller was sending pushback approvals during the gate hold. Fight me.


In that case then, yes, you should request pushback and then wait for clearance.
