VOR 16L/Circling 34R
Offset approaches, narrow runway 30m, turbulence & terrain.

Santorini airport is on the eastern side of the island of Thira, with all significant high ground along the western side of the island. The only obstruction east of the runways is a church on a small hill.

The airfield has two narrow (30m wide) runways; RWY 16L/34R is the primary runway and, although the secondary runway 16R/34L is also marked and lit as a runway, it is normally only used as a taxiway.

Westerly winds may cause considerable turbulence on all approaches.

APPROACH

The PAPIs for RWY 16L are set at a shallower angle than that required for the VOR DME approach. All instrument approaches are offset by varying amounts. When breaking cloud be prepared for the unusual visual presentation due to offset approach, narrow runway and differences in approach angle compared with PAPIs.

Caution: Do not deviate west of the runway extended centreline due to rapidly rising high ground.

RUNWAY AND AIRPORT FACILITIES

All runways only 30m wide; RWY 16L/34R has 8m hard shoulders on either side with the runway lights situated approximately 4m into these shoulders. RWY slopes approximately 1%.

All runways have arrester cables which are positioned 1,640 ft after RWYs 16L & 16R thresholds and 1480ft beyond the thresholds to RWYs 34L & 34R. There is also a jet barrier for RWY 34R which is positioned in the overrun beyond RWY 16L threshold.

-Taxiway and runway markings may be faded and not clearly visible, especially by night.
– holding points may have no signal panels.
– apron may have no stand or taxi guidance markings.

Mikonos, Greece JMK/LGMK

Mikonos, Greece
JMK/LGMK

VOR 34/Circling 16
VOR 34 glidepath 3.3 degrees.
Narrow runway 30m, runway length 6240’/1900m, turbulence & windshear

Mikonos is located in the centre of the Aegean Sea and can be subject to strong Meltemi winds. Orographic turbulence may be encountered below FL100 with these northerly winds.

N, NE and W winds may cause windshear.

Runway 34

The narrow runway and differences in approach angle compared with RWY 34 PAPIs will present an unusual visual appearance.

When landing RWY 34, be prepared for turbulence when crossing the coast and steeply rising terrain at approximately 1 – 1.5 nms final.

After landing 180 degree turns should be made at the runway ends.

Runway 16

Circle-to-land to the west of the airport only, with a minimum visibility of 6000m for RWY 16 landing.

Caution – there is extensive terrain to the north of the airport affecting the final approach area for RWY 16. The highest point is on extended finals (1223’ at approx 2.8 Nm). The terrain to the east of the runway (peak 902’ at 1 Nm) can cause a shadow which can affect the runway’s visual perspective.

The terrain to the north of the airport requires that all approaches to runway 16 are flown via a close-in curved right base, followed by turning finals at approx 1.5 Nm. A ‘base leg port’ (with a long narrow harbour), located on the MKN radial 325°/1.8 nms, provides a key landmark.

Circle-to-land – after an instrument approach to RWY 34 turn left from finals towards peninsula with heliport, (MKO217/2.5 Nm) before turning right downwind. Position right-hand downwind wider than normal (approx 3 Nm from runway). Position downwind wide enough to allow a gentle curved right turn to approach the port on an approximate track of 110°. Immediately to the left of the port the terrain rises steeply.

When arriving from the NW, it is possible to fly a visual approach directly to right base via the port.

Base leg – fly over the ‘base leg port’ (MKN radial 325°/1.8 Nm) on an approximate track of 110°, and at an approximate altitude of 1100’. Base leg port
The visual picture of the runway at this point can appear to be low, however you are only 2 Nm from touchdown. The terrain slopes up towards the runway. This in combination with the narrow runway and lack of PAPIs makes it difficult to judge the approach profile. From the port fly a curved approach using shallow bank angles and line up with extended centreline by 1.0 Nm (300’ ARTE).

After landing 180 degree turns should be made at the runway ends.

VIDEO

RWY 34 – This video starts on final approach to give you an idea of the visual perspective of landing on this 30 meter wide runway and gives a good view of the terrain just left of the center line on short final.

RWY 16 -This video starts while on downwind and clearly shows the port, other landmarks & terrain that will help you to fly this challenging approach.
