Kabul Airport’s landing system to be fixed in three weeks

kabul airportAfghan aviation officials announced Saturday that the landing system of Kabul International Airport would be fixed in three weeks time.

This comes after less than a week when it was reported that the airport was operating without a landing system.

The Airport’s Instrument Landing System (ILS) was not properly functioning. The reports said the device could only be fixed by the German company that had installed it. The company had claimed USD 90,000 Euros to fully fix it.

Head of the Afghan Independent Aviation Department Mohammad Zahir said that the German company that first installed the system had been contacted and the 90,000 Euro price tag for fixing it would be covered by the International Civil Aviation Organization (ICAO).

The ILS was installed at the Kabul Airport ten years ago at reported cost of over two million USD.
