Area Navigation Arrival Procedures at MSP Unveiled

The Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) will be publishing new arrival procedures for most runways at Minneapolis-St. Paul International Airport (MSP) in March 2015 that leverage Performance-based Navigation/Area Navigation (RNAV) technology. A generic depiction of RNAV is provided for reference.

The routes that arriving aircraft will follow on the final approach to MSP while using these new procedures will remain unchanged.

Effective March 24, 2015, the new arrival procedures will be used by RNAV instrument-equipped aircraft arriving on Runways 12L, 12R, 30L, 30R, and 35. For more information on the history of development of RNAV arrival procedures at MSP, click here: FAA Decision on RNAV Use at MSP
