Airport Briefing

Communication Procedures


Flight crews intending to fly an IFR approach shall contact Lugano TWR requesting the type of approach they intend to execute.

Whenever an approach to RWY 19 is prevented by northerly winds, crews who are unable for an IGS APCH and are not yet ready for a visual APCH to RWY 01 upon first call, shall expect an initial CLR (comprising a circling) to RWY 19. They shall report as soon as they are ready for a visual APCH RWY 01, and may expect to be cleared accordingly.

For VFR flights which do not carry a functional RTF equipment, prior permission is required. Light signals will be given by Lugano Tower.
