ILS uses radio beams to provide pilots with vertical and horizontal guidance during an approach, enabling them to navigate and land safely in difficult weather conditions and low visibility.
BIA said the upgrade from CAT I to CATII is a significant milestone in the airport modernisation programme, which will help to lessen the number of flights diverted from BIA, reduce flight delays, and ensure greater passenger safety.
“Work on the second phase of the project, which will see the ILS upgraded to CAT III, is also proceeding according to plan and is expected to be fully implemented in time for the completion of the airport modernisation programme by Q3 2019.
“This will further strengthen the Kingdom’s leading position in civil aviation, both regionally and internationally, and enable BIA to provide excellent services with the highest levels of safety for all airspace users.”
