Radar glitch hits flights services at IGI Delhi
New Delhi: The approach radar at New Delhi’s Indira Gandhi International Airport (IGI) failed for over one hour on Friday afternoon severely affecting flight movements for over an hour.
As per reports, the radar failed at about 12.30 pm. With no backup available, the system went into standby mode and had to be rebooted to the primary mode, a process which takes time.
Due to the sudden failure tens of flights that were being guided by the radar on their approach to the airport were hit. They maintained hold position at kept circling the sky until the radar was restored.
A similar glitch had occurred in 2010 too when Delhi’s air traffic control stopped working for more than an hour, delaying at least 200 flights by up to three hours.
More details are awaited.
