  • Preferred runways Departure preferred runways are as follows: 27, 09.
    ATC Clearance

    All flights shall leave TMA Rzeszow via one of the following fixes:


    SID name shall not be put in the flight plan.

    All SIDs at Rzeszow are RNP-1. In order to execute them, your aircraft has to be capable of area navigation (e.g. FMC, GPS, INS). If you are unable to perform it, or you are not sure about it, inform ATC before obtaining IFR clearance.

    EPRZ_GND is the clearance delivery station for Rzeszow Airport. To get your IFR clearance, contact Rzeszow Ground not more than 30 minutes before Off Block Time only with your callsign and destination. Your clearance will contain: runway, assigned SID or other departure instructions, the initial climb, your squawk code and current weather information.

    Please remember that currently we do not serve DCL/PDC clearance. 

    Taxi procedures

    Runway 27 is equipped with 1 "rapid-exit" taxiway TWY B

    Deicing is performed at APN 3 (STD 7)

    Low Visibility Procedures (LVP)

    When RVR is less than 550 m and/or cloud ceiling is less than 200 ft Low Visibility Procedures are in operation.

    During LVP for departure and landing only runway 27 should be used. Runway 09 can be used for departure on request.

    After landing runway should be vacated via taxiway B.

    Minimum RVR for departure is 125 m. Minimum RVR for arrival is 300 m.

    Stands At Rzeszow Airport there is one stand equipped with jetway - STD 4.
    Start-up, pushback and taxi

    Pushback is mandatory at stands 1-5, 15. On stand 7 and GA stands you can taxi out of the stand.

    Start-up and pushback

    Rzeszow Ground is responsible for all start-up, pushback and taxi. To ensure an adequate traffic flow, have your tow truck already connected when requesting pushback. On some remote stands pushback is not required, just request start-up and then you can taxi out of stand.


    Before requesting taxi prepare taxi charts for the aerodrome. This is very helpful for both pilots and controllers. 

    When requesting taxi advise if you are able to depart from intersection D1 - TORA 1855m. To use full length of RWY 27 backtrack is required.

    Take-off and departure  Ground controller will handle you to Tower with “contact” or “monitor frequency” instruction. If you are advised to monitor frequency – do not transmit, wait for controller to call you. When contacting Tower – contact with your callsign only, controller will find you.

    Prior to your departure, you should double check your FMC and the transponder: make sure you have the correct SID, your squawk code set and the transponder operating in Mode C. Be ready for departure upon reaching the holding point. In order to keep runway occupancy to a minimum, expect to receive an immediate takeoff clearance. ATC will assume every aircraft at the holding point is able to commence line up and take-off roll after clearance issued with no delay. If you are unable to comply with it, inform Rzeszow Tower before being number 1 in departure sequence.

    It is very important to strictly adhere to your SID and initial climb until given further instructions! When contacting the new controller, you should listen for other traffic talking on frequency to not interrupt them.
  • Preferred runways Arrival preffered runways are as follows: 27, 09.
    Arrival procedures

    Entry to TMA Rzeszow shall be planned via one of the following entry fixes: ETITI, LUXAR, DIBED, VELAX, ARTOB.

    Expect being assigned the correct STAR.

    As with SIDs, RNAV equipment is required. If you are unable to follow the procedure, put it in your flight plan and inform the ACC controller on initial contact. You may expect being given a shortcut to RSW VOR and then perform instrument approach procedure.

    The STARs only define the horizontal flight profile. Every level change (descent) has to be explicitly instructed by the ATC.

    After being issued the approach clearance, the STAR shall be continued until established on final.

    When traffic load permits, you may expect a shortcut to one of the points of the procedure.


    TMA Rzeszow is a procedural airspace, which means that controller doesn't have a radar and won't be able to see you. To provide ATC service, pilots will be asked for position reports. This report should contain current altitude and distance to next waypoint. You can also provide information about your indicated airspeed (IAS).

    Final approach



    RWY 09: RNP, VOR

    During final approach it is advised to maintain speed of 160 kts or greater (if possible) until 4 NM DME. ATC may impose other speed restrictions.

    Runway 27 is equipped with one rapid-exit taxiway - TWY B.

    Make sure to fully vacate the runway (cross the holding point) but hold short of the next taxiway in front of you. If not specified otherwise by TWR, after finishing landing roll and vacating the RWY, the crew shall establish communication with Ground (if online).

  • Procedures

    VFR flights in CTR RZESZOW/Jasionka are required to have a flight plan. Flights shall take place according to the published VFR routes. Shortcuts, other than published, are not permitted.

    Constant (cruising) altitude and pattern altitude for VFR flights in CTR EPRZ is 1500 ft. It is caused by dense buildings and high obstacles surrounding the airport. Flights shall not take place below that altitude. Flight above that altitude require coordination with APP or ACC controller (if online).

    Descent below 1500 ft is permitted only in close vicinity of the airport, during published holding procedures over VFR reporting points, approaches and runway operations.

    During high traffic load, aircraft in VFR flight may be instructed to hold on one of the published holdings:

    - on the north side of the aerodrome KILO, MIKE, NOVEMBER

    - on the south side of the aerodrome BRAVO, TANGO, WHISKEY, YANKEE, QUEBEC, HOTEL, GOLF
