I am astonished to see that such a small airport like Hurghada needs two runways when even London Gatwick has only one!
Is this just a waste of taxpayers money or is there a reason why a lot of small airports with considerably low traffic have two runways?
Can you think of any other small airports that have two runways?
I would understand this if the runways were not in the same direction so that they could be used with different wind conditions, however building parallel runways seems pretty unnecessary to me.
What do you guys think?
