Today, there are many people who are afraid of traveling by plane. But all the various reasons that make people afraid are all together at this airport.
Today, the safest form of transportation to reach a point from one point to another is known as the airway. Although the number of accidents occurring in the airways is quite low compared to other roads, many people still do not prefer the airways due to their various fears.
If you are among the people who have this kind of fear, maybe we have good news that will help you relax: Your fears are actually left next to the airport, which we will explain shortly. Because the airport, which we will explain soon, is far from today’s standards and has many difficulties.
The most dangerous in the world: Lukla Airport
Tenzing-Hillary Airport, also known as Lukla Airport, is located in Nepal, where the Everest hill is located. This airport is currently considered one of the most dangerous and demanding airports in the world. Of course, there are some reasons why the airport is called so dangerous.
Lukla Airport is located at very high altitudes and at the foot of the mountain. The location of the airport is constantly changing. When you look at the images above, you can see that there is something strange on the track as well. Even the shape of the runway is enough to make this airport dangerous.
This airport, at the foot of the Himalaya Mountains, is 2,895 meters above sea level. The trapezoidal track is only 526 meters long. If we say that the shortest runway at Istanbul Airport is 3,750 meters, you can better understand the limits of the airport. Of course, the planes that land here are also quite small.
Landings and departures at Lukla Airport are usually in one direction: to the end of the cliff. That’s why the planes that land at this airport face huge dangers. The airport is the busiest local airport in Nepal. Many people going to Kathmandu, the capital of Nepal, pass through this airport.
Certain criteria are also sought in pilots who will land at Lukla Airport. The Nepal Civil Aviation Authority is looking for pilots who will land here to have a flight in Nepal for at least a year, to have a guided flight to Lukla at least 10 times and to take off and land a short distance at least 100 times.
