Technical data: Procedures and approaches

Every aeroplane is accepted on the CargoPort platform at Lyon Airport and can takeoff or land H24. 

Aeroplanes that are equipped with turboprops are exempt from this restriction. Models AN12 and AN22 are thus not limited operationally. 

For confirmation, feel free to contact us with your registration number or type of aircraft.
