Malfunctioning Radar

Primary and Secondary radars (ELDIS-make) at the airport became unserviceable on September 2020, due to damage to the antenna during monsoon rains. Radars not only increase the safety of aircraft but also help airports to handle more flights. Currently, the airport uses ADS-B GPS-based system, and radar feed from Kochi via fiber optic cable, to provide vectors for flights.


Progress Made

Order placed for radar units. An RTI reply was received and recently informed that the radar system will be restored by July 2022.
