Night landing at Jolly Grant Airport

Dehradun, March 26
The night landing system has begun functioning at the Jolly Grant Airport, paving the way for the landing of the Kingfisher aircraft.
“The Kingfisher landed it’s aircraft amid the Night Landing System (NLS) and the Instrument Landing System (ILS) has been made fully operational,” said PC Sharma, Principal Secretary and Director Uttarakhand Civil Aviation. It took more than two years to get the ILS system going at the Jolly Grant Airport, near Rishikesh. As a result, now flights could land at night.
The delay had dented the credibility of the state government that was keen to increase air connectivity in the state.
