Preferential Selection of Runway

Leeds operates a preferential runway scheme, whereby the Westerly runway (32) will be used for take-off and landing in preference to the Easterly runway (14) when the tailwind component is no greater than 5kts and the surface is dry. The choice of runway remains that of AIR.
