New ATC tower at Delhi airport to commence operations by month-end

A new ‘state-of-the-art’ air traffic control tower will commence operations at Delhi’s Indira Gandhi International Airport by the end of this month, putting an end to congestion in airspace.

Quoting officials, a Hindustan Times reports said that the new tower, which boasts additional capacity and much advanced systems, will allow them to reduce the number of flights handled by a controller, thereby increasing their efficiency.

Vineet Gulati, member (air navigation services) was quoted as saying that at present the new tower is being tested for its efficiency and to check the navigation systems installed in it. By May end, we will start parallel operations and both the old tower and the new one will be functional.

“This will be done so that if any error occurs during the operations of the new tower, the situation can be controlled from the old one. After that we will start full operations with the new tower and old tower will function in the shadow,” he added.
