Question
Dear Stephen

Is marble flooring allowed on Airports runways?.


If yes, will you recommend?.


Thanks
Prashant

Answer
As far as I know, and I am not an expert, major commercial airport runways are made of concrete.  Secondary runways or taxi areas can be asphalt pavement.  Small craft landing strips can be dirt or gravel.

Marble flooring might be appropriate for the airport interior.
