holding bay


holding bay
A defined area on an airfield where aircraft in motion either taxiing or being towed can be held to facilitate ground movement or accommodate the queue for takeoff. At some airports where the peak demand results in full occupancy at all gate positions, ground control will often route an aircraft to a holding bay until a gate becomes available. During peak hours, aircraft may be held in the bay until given a takeoff position, at which time they move to the holding area.
