Air­port light­ing up­grades to help lift the fog

Southern Gazette (South Perth) - - News -

PERTH Air­port has started the process to in­stall cat­e­gory three light­ing in­fra­struc­ture to en­hance per­for­mance and ca­pa­bil­ity dur­ing Low Vis­i­bil­ity Oper­a­tions (LVO).

The air­port is at a cat­e­gory one aero­drome, which al­lows land­ing down to 800 me­tres and take-off at 550 me­tres vis­i­bil­ity.

While rare, each year fog causes sig­nif­i­cant dis­rup­tion to oper­a­tions, par­tic­u­larly dur­ing morn­ing and evening peak pe­ri­ods.

Chief ex­ec­u­tive Brad Geatches said the air­port was work­ing with Airser­vices Aus­tralia on the in­stru­ment land­ing sys­tem up­grade.
