Holding Willo EGKK

Hi, yesterday I flew from EGNX to EGKK rwy 08R with Kidli 1 G arrival. There was a lot of trafic so that after HOLLY the controller asked me to make a holding at Willo. I set up my Holding in the FMC, it was a LEFT TURN holding. But this made me cross the route TUFOZ - HOLLY I previously flew with the risk to meet another plane… So I changed the Holding to a RIGHT SIDE TURN.

I had a look at the STAR map from Jeppesen to check if there is an instruction regarding the side of the Holding at Willo but there is no…

Ho w can I know whet should be the side of a Holding… It seem that for Willo coming from Holly right turn is the most appropriated or not?


There is - in the lower left hand corner of 20-2C1 are the holding instructions for WILLO, which clearly show that the published hold there uses left hand turns.

It is also there on the same chart in Navigraph Charts as well

And don’t mistake it with “holding your willy”.
