Long takeoff wait?

I’m on the ground at URKK and I’m 2nd in line for takeoff. The person 1st in in line has requested to takeoff however ATC has told them to hold short even thought there is no traffic on final or any traffic on the runway? Please could anyone explain this?

Thanks, Jacob 🙂

Expert server.

Due to having lots of pilots heading towards URSS they use “flow control” as well mentioned in the ATIS at URKK. This is to decrease the traffic pressure on ATC instead of increase. It’s a normal ATC procedure so don’t worry! Be patient!


He may have his reasons, respecting security and the legal procedures.
