PREFERENTIAL RUNWAYS

CONTRAFLOW - Louisville International Airport is a heart-of-the-city airport with many nighttime operations. Noise sensitive areas just north of the airport include the University of Louisville and historical residential areas. The FAA approved a procedure called “contraflow” as part of our current noise compatibility program. Weather permitting, this procedure calls for all operations between the hours of 2200 and 0700 to be conducted south of the airport, where extensive mitigation programs have been implemented.

Noise Sensitive - Runway 17R arrivals, Runway 29/11 arrivals and departures are noise sensitive and available only for operational necessity.

Operations from 2200 to 0700 local - Runways are to be utilized according to the following listed order:

(1) Land Runway 35R/L for the inbound operations and depart Runway 17R/L for the outbound operations.

(2) Land Runway 17L/Depart Runway 17R/L

(3) Land/Depart Runway 17R/L

(4) Land Runway 35R/L/Depart Runway 35R

(5) Land/Depart Runway 29 The most preferred runway operation shall be used to the extent possible whenever wind, weather, traffic density, and field conditions permit.

Operations from 0700 to 2200 local - Runways are to be utilized according to the following list order:

(1) Land Runway 17L/Depart Runway 17R/L

(2) Land/Depart Runway 17R/L

(3) Land Runway 35R/L/Depart Runway 35R ( First preference from 0930-1230 LCL)

(4) Land/Depart Runway 35R/L

(5) Land/Depart Runway 29 The most preferred runway operation shall be used to the extent possible whenever wind, weather, traffic density, and field conditions permit.
