Any aircraft (code A to E inclusive) may exit runway 05 via A1, B1 or E1.

Any aircraft (code A to E inclusive) may exit runway 23 via A1, B1, D1, E1, F1 or G1.

Only aircraft up to 30,000kg MTWA can exit or enter Runway 05/23 via C1 (no larger than BAe146, F100, BAe ATP and S2000)

Stand 30 is preferred for pilots starting at EGPF flying heavy aircraft.

Aircraft wishing to enter the CTR or TMA under IFR direct from the FIR must observe the normal procedure for joining Controlled Airspace. For aircraft joining from the West a Reporting Point ROBBO (GOW RDL 281°/16 nm) is established at the TMA Boundary and pilots should anticipate joining clearance via this point.
