The runway is only 2,000 meters long, so pilots require quite some landing skills to land here. It is ranked the fifth most extreme airport in the world by the History Channel’s TV show “Most Extreme Airports.”
It is quite a funny sight. Just like with a railways crossing, the boom gates close when an airplane needs to cross. Sometimes they taxi to a different gate, sometimes they take off or to land. Once the airplane has passed, the barriers open and traffic can continue as normal.
