A defined path, on a land aerodrome, selected or prepared for the use of taxiing aircraft (ICAO). A taxiway is intended to provide a link between one part of the aerodrome and another, including to and from the runway. The term includes the aircraft stand taxi lane—a portion of an apron designed as a taxiway and intended to provide access to aircraft stands only; the apron taxiway—a part of the apron intended to provide a through taxi route across the apron; and the rapid-exit or high-speed taxiway, which is connected to a runway at an acute angle and designed to allow landing aircraft to turn off at higher speeds than are achieved on another exit taxiway and thereby minimize runway occupancy time. See rapid-exit taxiway.
