SGRDJI Airport, Amritsar has state-of-art CAT IIIB Instrument landing systems equipped runway 34. These systems are the most advanced of their class and provide the guidance required for pilots to land an aircraft in poor visibility conditions. While the equipments are available at airport, it also requires aircraft to be equipped on board and pilot to be trained to utilize these systems, ie; be CAT IIIB compliant. Most modern aircraft are CAT IIIB compliant and Airlines are required to roster CATIIIB qualified pilots during fog.
For the privacy of mothers who wish to nurse their infants, a well-equipped Child Care Lounge with baby cot, water dispenser is available at both International and Domestic Security Hold Areas.
Although aircraft and airport technology is continually evolving, operations during fog is limited to an extent. There is a minimum visibility required for pilots to safely land an aircraft in dense fog. Aircraft can land in up to 50 m RVR (Runway Visual Range) and normally take off if RVR is above 125 m. Take off can also take place if RVR is above 75 m if aircraft is equipped with approved lateral guidance system.
Airport has been designed to ensure hassle free movement of passengers with reduced mobility. Designated car parking bay, elevators, have been installed to enhance the airport experience. A special counter, located near departure gate and one at Arrival Visitor Hall has been placed to facilitate passengers who need wheel chairs. A passenger can also coordinate with the concerned airlines for special assistance.
Occasionally, the RVR at runway drops below 125m, which normally is minima for most of the aircrafts to depart but is above 50m, (minimum to land). Thus aircrafts wait for takeoff until there is improvement to the required level of RVR. However arriving aircrafts can land up to visibilities of 50m with the help of CAT IIIB ILS systems at SGRDJI Airport.
In most cases it is safe for women, with a normal pregnancy, to travel by air. However, it is best to check with your doctor before you plan your travel.
The Meteorological department of the Govt. of India issues advance cues about the probability of fog. However accuracy of advance notification of fog has been a challenge worldwide.
