Mangalore airport is ‘quite safe and complete’

Pollite > News > Mangalore airport is ‘quite safe and complete’

In June, we supported recommendations from the Directorate General of Civil Aviation, Airports Authority of India and the Ministry of Civil Aviation, for India to review its use of frangible structures on airport runways.

Recommendations from the three authorities, following the Mangalore air crash of 2010 highlighted the need for frangible-mounted structures within airports and cited Calicut and Mangalore airport antenna-supporting structures as examples.

This month, Mangalore International Airport was declared ‘quite safe and complete’ by the Airport Authority of India, which declared the hangar ready for expansion to meet the needs of the growing Indian economy.

The Airport Authority of India report states the airport now has ‘the best navigational and communication’ facilities and the electrical engineering division of the airport has ‘provided beautiful approach lights on either side of the runway.’

This is fantastic news for India and will really help the country put the Mangalore crash behind it, hopefully signalling the way for better runway safety all over the world.

If you want to follow India’s example and improve runway safety at your airport with frangible navigational aids, please call us today on 01325 355 525 or email info@pollite.com and ask how our FAA and ICAO-certified frangible masts can improve your safety standards.
