The Most Challenging Runways in the World

Geographical location, runway length, weather conditions, or a combination of these factors contribute to making certain airports home to some of the most challenging runways globally. In this blog, we'll explore airports with runways that test the skills of even the most experienced pilots.

1.       Lukla Airport (Nepal)

Lukla Airport is famously known as the world's most dangerous airport. Serving as the gateway to Mount Everest, this airport features a runway surrounded by steep Himalayan mountains on both sides. With a length of just 460 meters and a 12% incline, planes must brake in time to avoid sliding off the edge.

2.       Juancho E. Yrausquin Airport (Saba)
