Investigating agency: Dutch Safety Board
Narrative:
KLM flight KL1830 was cleared for takeoff from from runway 25R at Berlin Airport, but the aircraft departed from another position than the crew had entered into the aircraft system. Consequently, the available runway length was 1,320 metres less than calculated.
The takeoff data was based on a full length takeoff from runway 25R via taxiway L7, whereas the flight was cleared to use an intersection takeoff via taxiway L5. The published TORA for L5 is 2065 meters.

Because the aircraft is Dutch registered, the German Safety Investigation Authority BFU delegated the investigation to the Dutch Safety Board.

* The identity of the aircraft has not been confirmed. Four KLM Embraer jets operated out of Berlin on the day of the incident. ADS-B tracking data show PH-NXD and PH-EZY using the L5 intersection takeoff. ADS-B tracking data show that PH-NXD had crossed the end of the runway at about 200 feet whereas PH-EZY transmitted altitude data at least 250 feet higher at that point.
