Chandigarh International Airport Gets Set To Fly Afar In 2019


With the latest 20-day closure, the Chandigarh international airport will move a step closer to landing wide-bodied aircraft essential for global connectivity besides getting equipped for seamless flight operations during the foggy season.

More immediately, the operation hours will increase by an hour and half to 6pm from the next month, and the airport will remain operational on Sundays from July 1 onwards. Also, there will be no further closure of the airport.

The airport has been closed to extend the runway from the present 9,000 feet to 10, 400 feet. Besides this, technicians will also install ground lights and other navigation aides to ensure comfortable landing during the foggy season. Manpower training is also underway for 24×7 operation hours against only daytime working at present.

The airport has been working only during the daylight hours since October last year as much of the runway repair has been happening at night. Read More…
