The friction value of runway and taxiway pavements is one of the indicators used in combined with others for implementation of airport pavement management system. The knowledge of its performance provides support for safety runway operations and maintenance strategies. This research illustrates the results obtained analyzing friction data performed in the last ten years at a high seasonality airport. The data survey was carried out on a monthly base and analyzed with the scope of understanding the decay trend in regard to aircraft movement number, weather conditions and pavement maintenance. A general descending trend, strict-ly connected with pavement maintenance, was obtained. Oscillatory values were observed in the annual term, indicating the influence of seasonal traffic and weather conditions on runway wearing course performance. The obtained results can support pavement managers in scheduling routine maintenance and identifying funds needed.
