Fog halts flight operations at Dhaka airport for 6hrs

Patty Aguilar | 15 January, 2018, 12:45

Fog has once again impacted operations at the Kempegowda International Airport (KIA). The scale of disruption is the highest since early December 2017.

Civil Aviation Authority of Bangladesh (CAAB) public relations officer AKM Rezaul Karim said that the fog forced the authorities to suspend all fights at Dhaka airport since 6:30am. In addition, 7 arrival flights and 8 departure flights were cancelled. Officials said 63 flights departing from the KIA was delayed due to bad weather and 54 arrivals were also delayed.

Flight operations at the airport were suspended for over three and half hours from 2:10am to 5:50am since January 1 due to runway's renovation work. "As the sun rises, the fog clears up too which is why numerous flights during the 4am-8am bracket face the issue of delay", said Sundar S Metri, director, meteorological department, Bengaluru.

The regulator has set the runway visual range (RVR) at 400 m for flights taking off from an airport and 550 m for those landing. Work on upgrading this system to the CAT III B system with which planes can operate with just 46 meters of RVR is now underway and is slated to be completed only by September 2019.
