Replacement of Instrument Landing System could disrupt flights to Dimapur

Staff Reporter

Dimapur airport will be undergoing upgradation of the Instrument Landing System (ILS) in the next few months. This was confirmed to Nagaland Post by an official of the Airports Authority of India at Dimapur.
However, when that will take place was not known. The Airports Authority of India has recently commissioned Facility Performance Category-I Instrument Landing System (ILS) for various airports in the country. The new facility has an improved ILS Localizer Antenna System that will help in precision approach of all aircraft landing at the airport in all weather conditions.
The replacement of ILS will mean that Dimapur airport may not have ILS till replacement is completed. This will also mean that aircraft landing at Dimapur will not be assisted with ILS. It could even lead to disruption of flights as some airlines may choose to not fly to Dimapur especially during the monsoon months.
