De-icing pad design

Is the de-icing pad positioned when the plane arrives or when it departs or in both situations?

I consult because it is a question of design.

I will present my airport very soon in this forum, after many trial and error :grin: .

Thanks! :hugs:

Departure only.
You can place it before the runway. Nice thing about it is, that airplanes can drive through it even if they don’t need it. But make sure to have at least one tile of taxiway between the de-icing exit and entry to the ramp, as a direct connection seems to cause issues. Depending on the amount of planes, it makes sense to have at least two pads.
