  • A

    Standard arrival route(s) to be expected, the runway(s) in use, aerodrome altitude.

  • B

    Departure route(s) to be expected, the runway(s) in use, aerodrome altitude.

  • C
    Type of approach(s) to be expected, the runway(s) in use, present weather.
  • D
    Taxi-out delay, runway(s) physical characteristics, present weather.

ATIS messages containing both arrival and departure information shall contain the following elements of information in the order listed:
a) name of aerodrome;
b) arrival and/or departure indicator;

f) type of approach(es) to be expected;
g) the runway(s) in use; status of arresting system constituting a potential hazard, if any;
h) significant runway surface conditions and, if appropriate, braking action;
i) holding delay, if appropriate;
j) transition level, if applicable;
k) other essential operational information;
l) surface wind direction (in degrees magnetic) and speed, including significant variations and, if surface wind sensors related specifically to the sections of runway(s) in use are available and the information is required by operators, the indication of the runway and the section of the runway to which the information refers;
*m) visibility and, when applicable, RVR and, if visibility/RVR sensors related specifically to the sections of runway(s) in use are available and the information is required by operators, the indication of the runway and the section of the runway to which the information refers;
*n) present weather;
*o) cloud below 1 500 m (5 000 ft) or below the highest minimum sector altitude, whichever is greater; cumulonimbus; if the sky is obscured, vertical visibility when available;
