Jharkand’s Bokaro steel city becomes 1st small city airport to get AAI’s mobile ATC tower


Jharkhand’s Bokaro steel city airport has become the first small city airport to get Airport Authority of India’s (AAI) mobile air traffic control (ATC) tower, stated a Financial Express report. These towers are being used at small airports under the regional connectivity scheme Ude Desh Ka Aam Nagrik (UDAN). UDAN is a demand-driven Regional Connectivity Scheme enables air operations in unserved routes, connecting remote areas & affordable flying.

It may be noted that AAI acquired eight ATC towers from a Slovak company MSM Martin Company Slovakia at a cost of Rs 64.6 crore. The other seven towers will be installed in Bilaspur, Ambikapur, Jagdalpur, Jeypore, Utkela, Vellore and Mithapur.

A Times of India report earlier quoted an AAI official saying that these mobile ATC towers have been developed keeping India’s ATC requirements in mind. The towers are reportedly high quality and allow operation in any airport in the country. Read More
