Instrument landing system at Belagavi Airport to be commissioned by March


Thanks to UDAN and the growing trends of Belagavi with 400% growth year on year in passenger traffic, the airport is also gearing up for smooth landings and takeoffs.

From five to zero, Belagavi is back with bang and now leading in terms of more routes and more aircraft in the region with Trujet going to start its flights from mid of January, and additional Star Air flight to Indore, the Belagavi airport trending up to the upward growth trajectory, with 4 flights to Bengaluru, 3 to Hyderabad, 2 to Mumbai and 1 each to Pune, Indore, Kolhapur, Tirupati, Mysore, and Ahmedabad, in all 30 operations a day.


An Instrument Landing System (ILS) is a highly accurate radio signal navigation aid consisting of two antennas that transmit signals to receivers in the aircraft cockpit—a glide path tower located next to the runway at the northern end and a localizer antenna at the southern end. These antennas provide the pilot with vertical and horizontal guidance when landing in low visibility. An ILS is not used by departing aircraft.

The work on the same is in progress as would fully be commissioned by March 2020.


An ILS enables airlines and airports to continue operations in low visibility conditions, such as rain and low cloud. This will increase the reliability of landing at the airport. In any weather conditions, pilots must be able to see the runway before landing. An ILS will reduce the decision height, or minima, from 430 feet to 280 feet, improving the chance of landing in poor weather.

Today IXG is a zero to 30 operations a day is sure winning streak for people and its well-wishers of Belagavi, so can we be also called more connected or say Well connected and now with ILS it will be more safer and easier.
