Earlier in December last year, the Pakistan Civil Aviation Authority (PCAA) had completed the calibration process of the secondary runway of Lahore’s Allama Iqbal International Airport.

The PCAA experts had completed the calibration process of Lahore airport’s secondary runway after flights had been facing issues in landing and taking off amid foggy conditions.

The PCAA officials had checked the instrument landing system (INS), radio navigation and then declared the secondary runway fit for the flights’ transportation.

The Precision Approach Path Indicator (PAPI) and Doppler Very High-Frequency Omni-Directional Range DME System installed at the secondary runway had also been declared fit by the PCAA officials.
