Other notables....

Dallas Love Field (DAL): Runway 16/34---12,795 ft. x 197 ft.
Dallas Fort Worth (DFW): Runway 17R/35L ---13401 x 200 ft.

New York Kennedy (JFK): Runway 13R/31L---14,572 ft. x 150 ft.

I guess JFK is the longest and not RUH

I think SYD 34L / 16R is the longest in the southern hemisphere at 12,999'. Don't know about the worlds longest though.

For the record, the longest Max Runway Length I could find was 30,000'. However, this is a sea-plane base in Minnesota, USA.

Rgds,
B727-200.

For some reason, ABQ pops into my mind after reading that in a magazine (maybe it's the longest US runway, though?)

Edwards AFB in California has one runway on a dry lake bed that is 7 miles long (36,000 ft)!!!!!

I think it is probably has to be the longest.

I bet it is Harare, Zimbabwe's Harare Int'l airport with runway 5/23 being 15509 feet long. This being a commercial airport I believe and not military. Also isnt there a runway in United Arab Emiarates that is real long 15,000-16,000 ft I believe.

Regards

A fairly recent issue of Airliners magazine stated when asked the same question by a reader that it was Upington, South Africa - details below from this hot link

http://www.fallingrain.com/air/

The runway is 16 076 feet long! Do note take too much note of all the disclaimers. The author of the site is clearly just covering himself! I have just copied it over into the forum and the whole layout has re-arranged itself and the columns have fallen away, but you can get the picture; alternatively, visit the site.
