Munich has it.
Guess ATL, IAD and LAX have them as well.

SFO uses Runway 28L and 28R for simultaneous landings.

ORD almost all the time uses 27L and 27R for simultaneous landings and sometimes 9R and 9L for simultaneous takeoffs.

It's a pity LHR hasn't, it would so brilliant seeing 2 planes taking off at the same time!

Most airports with parrallel runways do... as well as many with intersecting runways if LAHSO is in effect.

You're asking where one can see two aircraft taking off simultaneously, or two landing simultaneously-- not just one landing as another takes off? I suppose that would be somewhat unusual at a two-runway airport. Seems to me that even at JFK simultaneous takeoffs are not at all common, tho simultaneous landings are.

FRA does NOT have it. They have to keep a few seconds in between as the parallel runway are too close together.

Somehwhere like DFW/ORD or LAX will have it, as they have more than 2 or 3 runways. You cant have simultaneous take off or landings with just 2 runways.

I'm sure the spacing at LHR does allow it!

If runway 23 was used at LHR, then it might be possible.

Why FRA doesn't have simultaneous landings. Runways 28 L and R at SFO are also very close to each other and they have simultaneous TO/LDG.

I think Osaka Kansai also have it and also NRT will have it soon.

This is hearsay more than a known fact. If an airport has parallel runways that are at least 1 mile apart, then parallel approaches and departures are acceptable. ORD is unusual in having simultaneous approaches and departures on intersecting runways. If I remember correctly, they have 3 pairs of parallel runways and each pair pretty much intersects the other 2 pairs. This is fine in good weather, but in bad weather the separation is increased and can lead to traffic delays. ATL has 4 parallel runways (maybe 5 by now). 2 North of the terminals and 2 South. The runways closest to the terminals are usually used for departures only, so backed up traffic does not have to cross an active runway. The outer runways are usually used for landings only. If one runway is closed then the rule is not used and I've heard that they were going to build another runway so 4 runways are open all the time. At times a runway is closed for maintenance or for an inspection, which is the reason ATL was going to 5.

Out of the 7 runways at DFW, 5 are parallel. I routinely see 3 aircraft on final approach simultaneously to 3 parallel runways. Does any other airport have this capability?

kind regards,

Afaik FRA's runways are only around 550m apart which is far to less to have complete simultaneous landings possible.

ORD will soon have it assuming everything gets approved with its new development plans. If everything goes well, ORD will have something like 6 parallel runways, two of which will be dedicated for take-offs.

I believe LAHSO means "Land And Hold Short Of" the intersecting runway...
