Airline companies ask for IFR technology at Surkhet Airport
Airline companies have demanded CAAN to install Instrument Flight Ruled (IFR) technology at Surkhet Airport. Surkhet Airport is operating in Visual Flight Ruled (VFR) technology.
Airports with VFR technologies have a high possibility of flight cancellation when the weather is unfavourable but IFR technology helps aircraft fly even when the visibility is poor.
Buddha Air said that if IFR technology is installed in Surkhet like other airports in the country, it will be easier to conduct flights even during the evenings. This, the airline company says, will help make lives easier for passengers.
Buddha Air has regular flights to Surkhet. The company flies its ATR-72 aircraft to Surkhet due to rising demand.
