Top 5 Airports in Southeast Asia with Longest Runways
Although runway length may be of some academic interest, in terms of usability for airline operations, a runway of at least 6,000 ft (1,829 m) in length is usually adequate for aircraft weights below approximately 200,000 lb (90,718 kg).
Generally, several factors determine a runway’s length including aircraft type. The larger the aircraft, the longer the runway required.
