Nepal to use ILS at Gautam Buddha International Airport After Agreement with India

Gautam Buddha International Airport could soon fully implement the ILS (Instrument Landing System). The news was announced in a joint press conference following PM Pushpa Kamal Dahal Prachanda’s meeting with his Indian counterpart PM Narendra Modi of India during his ongoing visit to India.

Be noted that ILS was already installed at the GBIA, Bhairahawa. However, due to the lack of permission to operate from India, it couldn’t be used easily. Flights would be canceled due to the lack of favorable weather conditions which could make use of ILS. However, Nepal can now use the system and ensure safer landings as well.

Pradeep Adhikari, Director General of the Civil Aviation Authority of Nepal, who is in New Delhi as part of the visiting party, shared that the ILS at Gautam Buddha International Airport will allow airplanes to land in any type of weather conditions using an instrument-based system.

First, Nepal has to complete the entire process of its installation and use.

Using ILS could touch India’s borders but there won’t be a need to take permission after the agreement between the two countries, writes Onlinekhabar.

Despite high ambitions, GBIA has suffered in operating international flights with no airline company flying internationally which has severely hurt its economy and raised questions on the government’s vision of long-term planning and strategies. As part of facilitating its operations though, the airport has been making some moves.

The ILS will bring much-needed operation safety to the airport after Indian agreement.
