CAT-II ILS Being Installed, From Next Year Visibility To Increase At Srinagar Airport: 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.

“Hopefully, next winter, our visibility requirement will reduce from 900 M to 500 M,” news agency GNS quoted Airports Authority of India (AAI) as having said.

At least 37 flights at Srinagar airport were cancelled due to poor visibility today. 42 out of the 44 flights were cancelled at the airport on Tuesday.
