New rapid exit taxiways improve operational efficency at Lisbon Airport


In January, ANA - Aeroportos de Portugal, will start working on the creation of two rapid exit taxiways at Lisbon Airport to improve operational efficiency, optimizing aircraft circulation and reducing taxiing time and therefore CO2 emissions.

This intervention, which will only occur at nighttime, implies closing the runway between 11:30 pm and 5:30 am, from January 6th until the end of June. ANA had previously informed airlines about these works, following the international timeframe defined for airport slots allocation process.
