Neighbors of the Daytona Beach International Airport may notice a change in flight patterns and an increase in north-south flight traffic over the next few weeks.
The airport began a two-year project in April to rehabilitate several taxiways, including the primary air carrier taxiway. Throughout the first year of construction, there will be several runway closures, causing changes in flight patterns.
Runway 7L-25R closed for approximately three weeks on May 31. With the runway closed, all aircraft must use the north-south runway (16-34) or the east-west parallel runway (7R-25L) on the south side of the airfield. This change in flight pattern will result in increased flight traffic for residents living on the north and south ends of the airport.
