Seems logical: long-haul and probably some heavy cargo on board, guess we'll see more of this during the works on 25R/07L.

Very rare situation: 25L for both take-off and landing! Watch out of traffic jams near the threshold.

It didn't last very long. Back to 01 for both take-off and landing.

I have seen that RWY 19 is used much lately. Is this due to the temporarily closure of RWY25R/07L? Because right know the winds also favor this runway, but say Sunday there will be not much wind at all. Will RWY25L/07R or 01 be used then? What do you guys think?

The preferred runway configuration until the 23 of August (end of the works) is 19 for arrivals and departures. So probably 19 on Sunday. :)

Without being an expert in RWY usage in EBBR: using the 19 direction makes sure that there are less residential areas affected by airplane noise: the landing path for 19 does not lead over densely populated areas like 01 would. And since EBBR is still pretty much capable of handling traffic with a single RWY in operation, that would likely be 01/19, since both landings onto 07R as well as departures from 25L are - for the reasons written above - rather a rarity.

So if weather allows, my guess for the weekend would be 19 again.

A rare situation right now: both takeoff and landing on Rwy 25L. Most short- and medium-haul aircraft can takeoff from the C1 intersection without having to go to the threshold of the runway and backtracking.
