Major airports asked to carry runway friction test every week


Major airports of the country have been asked to carry runway friction test at least once in a week and most of them have been asked to do the test once in two weeks.

The move has come following series of cases where plane skidded off the runway and in one of the case, SpiceJet plane got stuck at the main airport of the runway for four days, affecting the travel plans of many.

The Directorate General of Civil Aviation (DGCA) issued a circular on Tuesday, asking the airports handling more than 210 aircraft per runway per day to do the friction test once in a week while those handling 151 to 210 aircraft, will have to do the friction test once in two weeks. Read More
