New Delhi: The Airports Authority of India (AAI) today said the Lucknow and Jaipur airports have become CAT-IIIB (instrument landing system) compliant airports with effect from December 8th.




The AAI said in a statement in New Delhi, now Jaipur and Lucknow airports aircraft will be able to land with runway visual range (RVR) of 50 meters or more.

The statement said, “With the implementation of ILS CAT-IIIB operations from Jaipur and Lucknow airports, aircraft will face less delay or cancellation of flight during the winter fog season.”




“The problem faced by passengers during fog period would be reduced with the new upgraded CAT-IIIB system which fully supports continued flight operations and ground movement of aircraft during periods of low visibility (when RVR is as low as 50m).”
