  • What is Airport Apron (Tarmac) ?

    Airport Apron is the parking area of planes or aircrafts at the Airport. It is the portion of the airport usually paved in front of the terminal building.

    Airport Apron provides the relevance space for aircraft or planes to park for some period after the long hours in the Air. Airport Apron also serves as a place for aircraft to load or unload and refuel. Although the use of the apron is covered by regulations, such as lighting on vehicles, it is typically more accessible to users than the runway or taxiway.

    However, Apron is not usually open to the general public and a license may be required to gain access. The use of the apron may be controlled by the apron management service (apron control or apron advisory) to provide coordination between the users.

    The apron is designated by the ICAO as not being part of the maneuvering area. All vehicles, aircraft and people using the apron are referred to as apron traffic. Many people in the general public and news media refer to the apron at airports as "the tarmac" even though most of these areas are often paved with concrete and not tarmac, often referred to as PQ (Pavement Quality) concrete.

    The term "tarmac" was used during an early aircraft hijack episode in the Middle East. In the United States, the word ramp is an older term for an area where pre-flight activities were done; an apron was any area for parking and maintenance.

    Passenger gates are the main feature of a terminal ramp. The word apron is the ICAO and FAA terminology (the word ramp is not), so the word ramp is not used with this meaning outside the US, Canada, Maldives, and the Philippines.
