Taxiway routing around runway 28 –reducing the risk of collisions

Routing the taxiway around runway 28 is a measure to further improve the safety margin at Zurich Airport.

Fewer runway crossings

Routing the taxiway around runway 28 is a measure to further improve the safety margin at Zurich Airport. This long-term project will see taxiing aircraft separated from arriving and departing aircraft. More than 100,000 runway crossings will be avoided in comparison with 2019.

In the Sectoral Aviation Infrastructure Plan (SAIP), the federal government tasked Flughafen Zürich AG in 2017 with assessing measures for reducing the risk of collision between aircraft taking off or landing on runway 28 and aircraft crossing this runway to reach stands on the southern apron. Solutions involving taxiway routing around the runway at the eastern end were to be pursued in particular.

The current "Taxiway routing around runway 28" project spatially separates the traffic flows of arriving and departing aircraft from one another for the most part. More than 100,000 crossings over runway 28 will be avoided each year in comparison with 2019. The taxiway routing is an important measure to further improve the operational safety margin.
