Dubai airport gets low visibility flying approval

08 April 2009

Dubai International airport has been given approval to operate in very low visibility conditions such as fog. The General Civil Aviation Authority and Dubai Civil Aviation Authority have approved the upgraded CATIIIB landing system, which means planes can operate in visibility conditions below 200 metres down to 50 metres. The first time a Middle East airport has been given this approval, it will help reduce passenger disruption during the months when fog is most common, airport officials said.
