Gibraltar Airport is no ordinary airport -- it’s runway has a major public road crossing it meaning every time a plane is due to land or take-off the road is closed much like a railway level crossing.
The average time for an aircraft to land or depart is 10 minutes, so on busy days the road can be closed for over two hours.
There are plans for a major upgrade to the airport after the CÃ³rdoba Accord was signed by the United Kingdom, Spain and Gibraltar. This agreement ended a 17 year dispute that prevented civilian flights from all nations except the UK into Gibraltar Airport.
