I just found out that both runways of the new airport ELEFTHERIOS VENIZELOS in Athens are 45m wide! They seem very narrow comparing to most airports in the world and the 60m runway in the old airport. Arent most of the runways of Intl. airports 60m wide? Wont there be a problem for large aircraft like the A330/A340, 747, 777 or even the A380 because of the size and the wingspan?
