Primary Apron Area
The Apron can cater for up to six free-moving Code C Aircraft (B737/A320) and a B777-200 on Bay 9. A diversion Bay designated Bay 26 allows for any code Aircraft to park on the apron. The position is a power in from taxiway C and a power out to taxiway D. Taxiway E is restricted to B737/A320 types and is not to be used by Aircraft with wingspan greater then 36m unless permission from the Airport Operator is granted.
Runway 12/30 Turning Nodes
The current node configurations allow for B747/B777/A380 to conduct 180° starboard turns. A combination of differential thrust and braking is required to complete the manoeuvre. Aircraft types such as the A340-600 may experience the maximum wheel angle deflections at the nodes. The node line is designed for standard B747-400. All other aircraft are to use minimum speed and maximum radius turns to avoid pavement damage.
