Norfolk International Airport - Facilities and Aircraft

Facilities and Aircraft

Norfolk International Airport covers an area of 1,300 acres (5.3 km2) with airfield facilities consisting of a main runway (5-23) which is 9,000' x 150' (2,744 x 46 m) and a crosswind runway (14-32) which is 4,876' x 150' (1,486 x 46 m). These facilities allow operations to nearly all commercial aircraft types.

The crosswind runway's (14-32) was closed for renovations on December 19, 2009, at 12 noon. It reopened in Spring 2011. Eventually however, the airport's long-term plan calls for this runway to be destroyed to make way for a new parallel runway (5R-23L) east of existing runway 5-23.

For the 12-month period ending December 31, 2006, the airport had 128,715 aircraft operations, an average of 352 per day: 44% scheduled commercial, 33% general aviation, 16% air taxi and 8% military. At that time there were 106 aircraft based at this airport: 51% single-engine, 30% multi-engine, 17% jet and 2% helicopter.

General aviation services, or fixed based operations, are provided by Landmark Aviation with full-service facilities for maintaining and housing private and corporate aircraft. The modern 54,000-square-foot (5,000 m2) terminal facility offers everything from aircraft rental to sightseeing flights and aircraft repair.
