Britain’s Civil Aviation Authority has granted Oxford Airport formal authority for a 21% (896ft/273m) increase in its declared runway length.
In practice this means that the airport is open not only to many more types of aircraft, but increases the take-off weight of those already operationally approved. This is good news for operators headed across the Atlantic or for non-stop destinations in the Middle East or beyond. In addition, more regional airliner types can use the airport.
At the end of November, the airport received its largest ever aircraft, the Embraer Lineage 1000, which as the EMB-190 in airline configuration, carries nearly 100 passengers. Operated by Oxford-based charter company, Hangar 8 plc, the Oxford-based Lineage can easily undertake transcontinental flights from Oxford Airport. www.oxfordairport.co.uk
