The video shows the approach over the Sinai Mountains

APPROACH

CAUTION: If circling to land on rwy 22L/R, be aware of the island with spot height over 1,700′ amsl, approximately 8 nm SE of the airfield, which is just outside the circling area.

RWY04

Although SSH ATC don’t use the RNAV approach plate for vectors to 04, if you input the two turning points IVUTA then IMLES into the FMC it will assist in your descent planning as this is exactly where ATC will take you.

RUNWAY AND AIRPORT FACILITIES

It has been reported that navigation aids are sometimes not operating, with no NOTAM notification.
Boarding while refuelling is permitted at SSH (at an additional cost). The Captain may be asked to sign an authorisation form.

TAKE-OFF AND DEPARTURE

Departure clearance is normally given while taxying, expect radar heading after departure with the prospect of an early turn towards KAMIS. Note that 25nm MSA in that direction is estimated at 10100′ (nb the +/- on the charts that denotes un-surveyed accuracy).

ATC

After landing ATC will request the following information:
– Aircraft registration
– Port of departure
– Entry point
– Total passengers on board
