Ayodhya Airport to receive operational licence for Phase 1 by October

Ayodhya Airport’s first phase is on track to receive its operational licence from the Directorate General of Civil Aviation (DGCA) by October. This milestone will pave the way for commercial transportation of passengers and goods. Equipped with night and fog landing facilities, the airport features a 2,200-meter-long runway capable of accommodating Airbus A320, ATR-72, and Bombardier private jets.

To facilitate commercial aircraft operations, the runway has been fitted with advanced navigation systems, including Doppler Very High Frequency Omni Range (DVOR) and instrument landing systems (ILS). DVOR provides crucial bearing information for air traffic control routes, while ILS ensures precision guidance during final approaches in low visibility conditions.

With over 70 percent of construction completed, including the terminal building, runway, taxiway, and apron, Ayodhya Airport is progressing rapidly. The engineering team is currently fine-tuning the systems, and by October, they anticipate receiving the licence to operate. Airlines will then have the flexibility to commence commercial operations at their discretion.

Spanning 821 acres of land, the airport is being developed in three phases, with the initial phase focused on domestic operations and subsequent phases accommodating international flights. Excitement grows as Ayodhya Airport gears up to become a vital transportation hub in the region.
