During the monsoon, the side strips of
Runways in Bangladesh become extremely soft. Pilot are therefore warned and

Limitation on the use of aerodromes
Apron mass is restricted for aerodrome
whose ACN is higher than corresponding runway PCN. Airline operators are
required to submit trim sheet of the flights to PFIU within shortest
possible time of
flight departure. Restriction will remain valid till Runway condition is
improved by CAAB. In case flight has to be operated at higher ACN value,
CAAB shall be approached for prior approval.
Restricted to aircraft capable of
maintaining two way radio communication with Tower, unless prior permission
from the Tower has been obtained. Such permission will only be given in
of aerodrome movement areas
The relevant airport authority is
responsible for maintaining the aerodrome in a satisfactory condition for
flight operations and for assessing and reporting on runway conditions.
The following priorities have been
established for the clearance of movement areas:
(a) Runway-in-use, run-up area, aprons and
(b) Dependent on circumstances, other
runway and taxiways.
Dissemination of information on
affected by standing water
If a runway is affected by standing water
at any time during the approach of an aircraft for landing, the depth and
location of such standing water is notified by the aerodrome authority
direct to ATS for transmission to the aircraft. If the duration of the
phenomenon is likely to persist, and the information requires a wider
distribution, a NOTAM is issued.
