Work On New Landing System At Srinagar Airport Gathers Pace


In a bid to address the poor infrastructure and frequent cancellations at the Srinagar Airport, the two-phased plan of Indian Air Force (IAF) to upgrade the aerodrome is witnessing steady progress, officials said. Ninety per cent of work on the first phase of the project has been completed and the second phase is likely to take two more years.

Once completed the project will upgrade Instrumentation Landing System (ILS) and runway facilities at the airport including the lighting and other capacities.

The project has been undertaken under the IAF’s “Modernization of Airport Facilities and Infrastructure (MAFI)” scheme.

Talking to Greater Kashmir, an IAF official said the upgradation of ILS will also ensure that flight operations are undertaken in lesser visibility. Read more
