AERTEC Solutions was commissioned by AENA to undertake the planning and design of a new runway, taxiway and apron system at Gran Canaria Airport.
The scheme includes the new runway, as well as the associate taxiways required to connect the existing airfield, rapid exit taxiways, holding bays and the levelling for future developments of the apron beside the new Runway 03L-21R. This runway was designed to be 3,100 metres long and 60 metres wide appropriate for CAT I operations, designed according to ICAO requirements for Runways Code 4F, with the ability to operate aircraft such as the Airbus A380.
The services provided by AERTEC Solutions also included the assessment of technical, capacity, operational, environmental and safety aspects, in order to evaluate the cost-benefit potential of a new runway.
