The Facts

In Option 2, the new runway would be far enough from the existing runway to enable independent operation of the runways;

The method of runway operation under Option 2 would be segregated mode, meaning that one runway is used for arrivals and the other for departures;

We have used a peak hour capacity figure of 85 aircraft movements per hour in our planning;

With more space between the runways in this option, we can build a new terminal between the runways.
