Port Blair airport gets night landing, take-off facilities

PORT BLAIR: Night landing and take-off facilities are in readiness at the Utkrosh Airfield of Veer Savarkar International Airport in Port Blair, with the completion of the Airfield Lighting System (AFLS), officials said.

The aviation infrastructure at INS Utkrosh, under the supervision of the naval headquarters at New Delhi and Air Marshal Saju Balakrishnan, Commander-in-Chief, Andaman and Nicobar Command (CINCAN), has undergone significant enhancements in the recent past, with the installation of several equipment under ‘Project MAFI’ (modernisation of airfield infrastructure), they said.

The commissioning of Tactical Air Navigation System (TACAN) and Precision Approach Radar (PAR) heralded a “quantum jump in terms of safety and operations” of military flights at the Utkrosh Airfield, a senior Command official said.
