Airports Fiji Limited has today signed an agreement with Indra Australia Pty Ltd to install new Instrument Landing System and Distance Measuring Equipment at Nadi and Nausori International Airports.

The project is valued at around $6 million and is expected to commence in the first quarter of 2017.

Airports Fiji Limited Executive Chairman Faiz Khan said the project would upgrade the Nadi Airport ILS/DME and install a new ILS/DME for Nausori Airport.

KHAN: “This is another important project in our modernization phase. In the overall improvement of our ground aids navigational equipment, the ILS/DME system is the primary precision instrument for safe landing of aircraft in Nadi and Nausori, particularly in bad weather,”

Indra Australia Pty Ltd ATM Business Unit Manager Ragnvald Johan Stensland said the new equipment would be comparable to prominent international airports.

STENSLAND: “The project is a reference to Indra, and we’re proud of being the technology partner to AFL. Nadi and Nausori Airports will soon receive equipment identical to that installed at airports like Sydney, London Heathrow and Singapore.”
