Airport Parking

Recommended Posts

When flying into and out of large airports for an airline, say Air Canada, how does one know where his airline park?

Is there a website where I can find this info for any airport?

thanks

Paul

I agree that it's difficult to know where your airline terminal is at any given airport.  You can try this site

 

for terminal information.  http://airnav.com/airports/

 

As for landing and being assigned parking at any given airport, does Ground Control give you a proper

 

spot according to the livery you are flying?

Unfortuantly that site is US only. Does anyone have a European, or world site of a similar nature? You can look up real flights on flightrader and such, but often they can just give you a terminal

I usually log into the airports webpage, most have real time arrival/departure boards that list the gates. 

Examples:

http://www.panynj.gov/airports/flight-status.html?view=&apt=JFK

http://www.schiphol.nl/Travellers/FlightInformation/Departures.htm#top

 

Click on details at Schiphol and it will open a window with the gate number. 

 

Also, Flight Stats will either give you a gate or at least the terminal for parking which is close enough something.

I've actually had controllers on VATSIM that have parked me at the exact gate used in the real world flight.

Thanks guys.

I tried looking at Flightaware and it usually shows the dep/arr gates.

I have too. Had some great events in to LIMC, to name just one, and they give me the exact stand to go to and it's great. Just wondering for situations where that doesn't happen. But the ATC in Europe can be fantastic for putting you on the right stand and shout out to them
