This paper looks at the effect of the taxiway extension on runway capacity at Ljubljana – Jože Pučnik Airport, which serves as the main airport of the Republic of Slovenia. Due to it’s geographical location instrument arrivals are only possible from south-east, on the runway 30. This situation severely reduced the capacity of the airport until in 2007, taxiway A was extended fully to the threshold of the runway 30. Main part of the paper scrutinizes different scenarios of air traffic on the runway, including departures only, arrivals only and mixed operations, based on real time approximation of the traffic mix. Aim of the research is to provide comparison in runway capacity before and after the taxiway A extension.
