Information about preferred runways

In this section you can consult the preferred runways of the most important Spanish airports.

All airports have one or more preferred runways. Usually the preferred runways are chosen because they are equipped with ILS approach systems. At those airports that have more than one runway with an ILS approach system, the preferred runway will be the one that, due to its magnetic orientation, favors the departure or arrival of aircraft.

Take the Asturias airport as an example. This airport has runways 29 and 11. The first is equipped with an ILS CAT-III, so as long as the wind intensity is less than 10 knots regardless of direction, it must be used both for departures and for Runway 29 has arrived. In case the intensity exceeds 10 knots, and also the wind direction is favorable for runway 11, we must use line 11 without hesitation.

You can apply these same rules for the rest of airports.
