The retrofitted Instrument Landing System (ILS) at Enshi Airport has been approved by the CAAC and officially put into use.
Enshi Airport can now handle flight operations in all weather conditions.
Because of the unique geographic location and weather characteristics at Enshi Airport, it is constantly affected by low-level clouds and heavy fog, often resulting in flight delays and cancellations.
China Civil Aviation Report states that to increase airport usage and the number of flights on schedule, Enshi Airport retrofitted its ILS by investing RMB15.2 million in an advanced imported ILS.
After more than a year of construction and installation, it has successfully passed industry acceptance by the CAAC Central and Southern Regional Administration, Hubei Airport Group, and China Airport Construction of the CAAC.
With ILS, Enshi Airport has stronger navigation capabilities, less dependence on weather conditions, and hence more convenience for passengers.
