The attached photo shows a 737 departing enroute to Denton Regional. Can a 737 operate from a 5999 foot runway?

Attached is airfield info:

Well with an altitude of only 632 ft ASL, and perhaps it was empty on return, 5999 is more than enough.
When AS flew to Dutch Harbor, their rw is only 3900 I believe.

And, I have seen a 737 of old Viscount Air Service fly into/out of McCall,ID (MYL), the runway is just tad over 6000' and elevation just over 5000'.

But if it was 90 degress in Denton, maybe close.

The caption for the picture states July 2005... I can assure you that it is a wee bit warmer than 90 degrees here! In August, we sustain triple digit temperatures when the heat index is factored in. Thanks for the info.

Correct.

As Javibi said above, Santos Dummont Airport (SDU) in Rio de Janeiro has a very short runway where 737-300/700 and A319 operate regularly. The length of the runway 02/20 is 1350 meters or a little more than 4300 feet. And is also one of the most beautiful approaches in the world, indeed.

Depending on the aircraft weight, I believe 4999 is more than enough.



Better one flying than two grounded

Dutch Harbor is very tricky because you have to deal with not only the short runway but the terrain which rises rapidly at the end of the runway. Also during bad storms the runway disappears under water leaving all kinds of interesting things behind. If they can't land at Dutch Harbor, Cold Bay is usally the diversion point.

737-200s have flown into and out of KAHN (Athens,GA), longest runway is 5500 feet on sports charters for the University of Georgia. Football team charters fly out of Atlanta Hartsfield, I believe.
