When I was in Rodes Grease earlier this year, I saw a 757 300 and A320 ( most likely charter airlines) come into Rodes. Seeing as it look like a popular tourist area, I wonder could Rodes airport take widebodies? It would be cool to see an A350XWB land there.

Their runway ought to be very slick, considering it's located in Grease. I hope you meant GREECE?

Rhodes' longest runway is 10,846 ft long - longer than SAN's. If a partially loaded 747 or a fully loaded 777 can become airborne here, Rhodes would not be a problem.

As for the likelihood of such an event, well...let's just say I wouldn't count on it anytime soon.

Rhodes has a 10,846 ft. runway and being almost at sea level should be able to handle almost anything. There are quite a few photos of widebodies at RHO.

Landing is not a problem for most of the modern commercial airliners out there from a LDA and PCN/ACN standpoint except for the 747-100/B/SF due to a too high tire pressure. Taking off again close to MTOW would be a problem though for airliners such as the A340-500/-600 (PCN/ACN disagree), 777-200LR/-300/-300ER (PCN/ACN disagree) and the MD-11 (PCN/ACN disagree).

When I had my holiday at Rhodos I was flown in on a Martinair B763 and we where leaving on a KLM A332, which was chartered by MP.
The flights where from/to AMS, about 3,5 hrs flight time so not at MTOW. Especially the 332 take off at RHO was really power full on the lightly loaded a/c.

I flew to and from Rhodes in 1982 on a Scanair DC-8-63 with 252 seats. Wonder if that aircraft used a lot of runway... ?


Come, fly the prevailing winds with me

In the days when Olympic had 747s, I understand RHO was regularly used for training flights.

Several pics of an El Al 747-458, apparently on approach, in the database.
