Al Bateen increases capacity with ILS upgrade
Al Bateen, an Abu Dhabi-based airport dedicated to private aviation, has completed the Instrumental Landing System (ILS) Category 1 upgrade.
According to a statement, ILS is an international air navigation system that will allow the airport to handle more aircraft movements.
The ILS Category 1 upgrade is part of a long term plan that includes upgrades to the airport’s Air Traffic Control and Automated Weather Observation systems.
“By achieving this milestone today, Al Bateen is now placed firmly on the world airports’ map,” said James E. Bennett, chief executive officer of Abu Dhabi Airports Company, which runs Al Bateen.
“It is within ADAC’s vision for Al Bateen to grow into a business aviation hub, and with this ILS upgrade the airport is on the right track.”
