Smoother landings, take-offs at Delhi's IGI as it's all set to get a 4th runway

Feb 22, 2021 14:53 IST | By Other

Travellers at New Delhi's Indira Gandhi International airport are in for a smoother journey as the airport's fourth runway could be ready for operations this September.

According to reports, the runway is nearing completion and once operational, it will cut down waiting time for approaching and departing flights. It will also increase the airport's per hour flight handling capacity. 

This also means fewer flight delays in the fog season as the new runway will come equipped with advanced landing systems, allowing aircrafts to land and take-off in visibility as low as 50 metres. 

It will also be able to cater to the biggest passenger aircraft in the world, the Airbus A380.
