CAT-I operations of ILS completed at Patna airport

Preliminary works have been completed for Category I operation of the instrument landing system (ILS) at the Jayprakash Narayan Interna­tio­nal airport in Patna, Bihar. Category I operations are for precision app­roa­ch and landing of flights to improve visibility. As of April 13, 2023, the Airport Environment Management Committee informed airport authorities to get approval for the installation of the new ILS. The new system will increase the landing capacity of aircraft on the runway and minimise flight cancellations.
