Installation of CAT-II at Sgr Airport will commence in April, visibility to increase next year: AAI


SRINAGAR: Authorities on Wednesday announced that the process for installation of CAT-II instrument landing system (ILS) at Srinagar ‘International’ Airport will commence in April this year and will be completed by November.

ILS is a radio navigation system that provides short-range guidance to aircraft to allow them to approach a runway at night or in bad weather. ILS “Hopefully, next winter, our visibility requirement will reduce from 900 M to 500 M,” the Airports Authority of India (AAI) said in a statement.

So far a number of flights to and fro Srinagar airport were cancelled due to poor visibility, 42 out of the 44 flights were cancelled at the airport. (GNS)
