Home » Aviation » NAIA to get new landing system

THE Manila International Airport Authority (MIAA) is installing a new instrument landing system (ILS) by August 7 at the latest, according to newly installed Transportation Secretary Jose de Jesus.

The equipment will be installed at both ends of the runway at the Ninoy Aquino International Airport (NAIA). It is state of the art and is similar to those used by airports such as Frankfurt in Germany.

The ILS is a ground-based instrument approach system that provides precision guidance to an aircraft approaching and landing on a runway.

A few weeks ago, the navigational equipment at NAIA malfunctioned, forcing the diversion of some flights. The system has been temporarily fixed using modules borrowed from the Subic International Airport.

But over the weekend, at least 35 domestic and international flights that were supposed to land at the NAIA were again diverted to Pampanga, Cebu, and Iloilo due to poor visibility.
