Clearances are issued during taxi in Algeria. Don't ask for departure clearance before Taxi.
⚫ Keep in mind that all clearances come from Algiers Control/Approach and are delivered by Ground or Tower.
⚫ Clearances format : "XXX, After departure, turn right and proceed direct BNA, climb and maintain FL140 initially".
⚫ In most cases, we give direct points after take off so don't execute a SID if a plain language instruction is given to you,however, if ATC tells you "XXX, SID4 departure, FL140 initially" , then you have to execute the SID.
⚫ Study all SID, and particularly how to intercept and follow a radial.


⚫ Generally, when cleared for an approach Rwy XX then follow the published procedure on charts.
⚫ Radar vectoring is also provided.
⚫ Expect visual approaches when weather permits it
⚫ If you are unable to perform a visual approach, inform the ATC, and a full procedure approach will be given instead.
⚫ Study also holding patterns as we expect a lot of traffic this day.


Departure: Runway 27 or Runway 05 are commonly used.
Arrival: Runway 09 or Runway 23 are commonly used.
