Kanpur: With the installation of
Instrument Landing System at Ahirwan airport, the flight
service on Kanpur-Kolkata route is set to start from April 27.
"The flight service from Kanpur to Kolkata will start
from April 27," local MP and Union Coal Minister Sriprakash
Jaiswal said here adding that "Kanpur is an industrial city
and there was a long pending demand from the business class to
start a flight on this route."
Efforts will also be made to start flights to other
major cities across the country, he said.
Earlier, flight service from Kanpur was operational
only to Delhi but it was irregular during winter season due to
low visibility and landing on the airport was possible only
during the day when visibility is around 2000 metres.
Instrument Landing System will enable landing of
aircrafts in poor visibility conditions and thereby avoiding
cancellations and delays, airport in-charge PK Jha said.
