[question] B737 in KJK ?

Hello

I have a question.

Can a B737 land and depart at/from KJK?

Thanks,
Kind regards,

Depends on what you're asking.
Strictly speaking, the 737NG CAN land and takeoff from the runway at EBKT, although not (or just barely, depending on variant) at max takeoff weight (MTOW).
Even so, wouldn't recommend it.

And indeed, it is not allowed to do so, according to http://worldaerodata.com/wad.cgi?id=BE02778.

This states: "arpt is rstd to acft able to opr with a tkof dist of less than 3937' at MTOW"
No 737 variant can do this... At least of the NG-series, I didn't check on the older ones, but I suspect the same would be true.

So, the short answer: No. :hihi:

Lars

Hello

I heard 3 years ago a B737 of JAF visited KJK for a charity flight.

Well, I'm not sure either. :hihi:
I did some more searching, but at first sight I couldn't find any direct info in any official or semi-official publication. At least not those I have looked at.

I did notice that EBKT has very narrow taxiways. But I don't know how wide they need to be for a 737, so...

Lars
