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.

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