Bahrain to complete airport upgrade by 2018-end

MANAMA, January 3, 2018

Bahrain is set to upgrade the air navigation system and instrument landing system (ILS) in a bid to improve standards and the flow of air traffic at the kingdom's international airport.

Deputy King, HRH Prince Salman bin Hamad Al Khalifa has issued a directive to the Ministry of Transportation and Telecommunications in this regard, which will, in future see Bahrain International Airport using the world’s latest landing technology, reported BNA.

Minister of Transportation and Telecommunications Kamal bin Ahmed Mohammed pointed out that this project falls in line with the national development vision of His Majesty the King, which includes maintaining the kingdom’s status in the aviation sector, stated the report.

It will significantly improve navigation and instrument landing services during times of low visibility, contributing to reduced flight delays and diversions, and improvements to the overall service offered from Bahrain International Airport, said the minister.

The project will be completed by the year-end, he added.
