VOR 11/VOR 29
Expect delays due to military traffic.

Chania (Souda) is a joint military/civil airport.
Expect delays when military aircraft are arriving or taking off. Holding overhead the airfield during this period is common practise and could take some time.

DESCENT

A ridge of high ground runs E-W passing about 15nm south of the airfield to over 8,000 feet amsl. An obstacle rises to over 2,000 feet amsl just 2nm north of the airfield on another ridge.

APPROACH

Note that the DME altitudes on Jeppesen charts 13-1 and 13-2 give rise to a descent slope of slightly less than 3°.

RUNWAY AND AIRPORT FACILITIES

Note that the Southern parallel taxyway has runway markings and lighting and may be used as an emergency runway.
Do not trample the arrester nets at either end of the runway; the arrester wires on the runway may be trampled.
Caution taxying from the terminal for runway 11 due steep upslope and no jet blast protection for the terminal.

The Greek AIP does not publish taxyway widths for CHQ so taxy with caution.

SPECIAL CONSIDERATIONS

Caution – with strong NW to NE winds, the ridge running NW to SE approximately 2-3 nm from the airfield may give rise to severe turbulence on final approach and climb out for either runway. The prevailing winds is SE and strong winds from this direction may also result in severe turbulence.
