Airport lighting upgrades to help lift the fog
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.
