Where | New Delhi
The Airport Authority of India has started the trial run of India’s tallest ATC Tower at the Delhi Airport! And while the authorities have said that it’ll be functional from October 2018, the trials will continue until April. However, they have also said after the trials, the new 101.9-meter tall tower will parallelly function with the old one for 6 months.
The tower is among the tallest structures in Delhi. And it will give a 360-degree view of the airport to the controller and eventually help in on-time performance of the flights.
Built at a cost of Rs 350 crore, the tower will give controllers a view of all the three runways, aprons and taxiways. With this new tower, operational capacity of the ATC is likely to improve. Constructed adjacent to the present ATC tower and once operational, it will be tallest in the country and seventh tallest in the world.
