The Antonio Nariño Airport Runway is built on a plateau that rises 50 metres above the surrounding terrain. In addition, the runway is relatively short for the altitude at which the airport is located, it has a length of 2,130 m. The orientation of the track is such that it is frequently disabled by strong crosswinds that prevent takeoff and landing from being carried out safely.
What sets it apart from the other European airports is the connection of the taxiway with a housing estate, meaning that the aircrafts can be parked directly in their owner’s hangar.
