Low visibility and fog, not an issue for flights landing at Jaipur airport

Jaipur airport will start its CAT-IIIB operations at 5.30 am on Thursday morning, becoming the fourth airport in the country to have this facility, after New Delhi, Kolkata and Mumbai, in the process.
CAT-IIIB is an advanced navigation system that helps aircraft to land in low-visibility and foggy conditions.
From Wednesday night to Thursday morning, operations of 13 flights from Jaipur airport will be affected due to preparations to get the system functioning.
The officials of Airport Authorities of India (AAI), Jaipur, are burning the midnight oil to start the operation. They have rescheduled some flights as landings and take-offs will be stopped at the airport from 9pm on Wednesday to 5am on Thursday.
"We had to cancel Jaipur-Pune, Jaipur-Kolkata, Bengaluru-Jaipur, Kolkata-Jaipur, Pune-Jaipur and Jaipur-Bengaluru Indigo flights. The timings of four flights have been changed," said a senior AAI official.
