Most Commercially Active U.S. Airports With 100 Ft Wide Runways?

Tue Nov 05, 2019 1:39 am

It appears to be that most commercially used runways in the U.S. are either 150 ft to 200 ft wide, but are there commercially active 100 ft wide runways? If so, what are the most active runways, and their associated airports? For this question, I'm not referring to commercially active airports with a 100 ft wide runway (e.g. Boston Logan), but rather commercially active airports where the most often used runway by airlines is 100 ft wide.

Probably very few in the US as the FAA Part 139 standard is 150’ for commercial ops. TUS has a 75’ wide parallel to the main 12-30 runway.

I'm referring more to airports such as EYW, whose active runway used by airlines is 100' wide - TUS's 75' wide runway wouldn't be regularly used by airlines, due to the main runway you mentioned.

If you don’t mind small airlines, a lot of the airports Cape Air flies into are 100’. KRUT, KPVC, KMVY etc. not sure that C414s is what you had in mind though.

USA/KJQF has a 100' wide runway with a few flights per day by G4. They also see airline charter flights in 737s occasionally.

KLBE is 100' wide for now. NK has 5ish flights a day. A second jet bridge was just installed and the runway is being widened to 150' though in September 2020 with a 2 week long shutdown of the airport.

KRDM has a runway that's 7,006 ft. by 100. It gets quite a bit of commercial traffic.

It does have another 150 ft wide runway, but obviously it depends on the winds which one's used at any given time. It's not like KTUS where the thinner runway is parallel to the wider runways.

Are there any commercially active runways with 100' ft widths exceeding 1,000,000 annual passengers? KRDM seems to come close, so I was wondering if there are airports with said runways that are over that threshold.

The data is here. You can go through that list and see which airports have 100ft wide runways

I'm not searching simply for any airports with 100 ft wide runways, but airports over 1,000,000 passengers a year that use a 100 ft wide runway as their primary runway for commercial service. I may search for those criteria in the list in the future, but I'm interested in any airports meeting this criteria that people know from the top of their heads.

Is this some kind of test? Who knows this kind of trivia “off the top of their heads”.

No, I was mainly wondering how rare this criteria is for active airports.

Generally when people join and ask a question right away, you already know its going to be a doozy.

Actually, I think Woodreau's essentially answered my question. Thanks to those who answered.

As I said, it’s rare as Part 139 and Part 150 airport standards drive commercial airport design. When Pease AFB closed and became civilian, the FAA funded resurfacing and narrowed the runway from 300’ to 150’ wide. There are many factors involved.
