Trichy first in country to get automatic dependent surveillance-broadcast system

The automatic dependent surveillance-broadcast system (ADS-B), a surveillance system to track aircraft with the help of satellites, was commissioned at the international airport here on Tuesday.

The surveillance system was introduced on a trial basis in 21 airports across the country, but Trichy became the first airport where the system was commissioned. The technology was under trial for the past one month. It was finally commissioned by V Somasundaram, member of the airport navigation and surveillance unit of Airports Authority of India in Bengaluru.

V Somasundram, after launching the system, said the ADS-B system could help airlines reduce flying time and also improve safety thorough better awareness of the situation in the air. The advanced mechanism has been installed at the air traffic control (ATC) station in the airport. It has been integrated with the Chennai radar data and can also optimise the flight through direct route feeds.

He added that the system also had other benefits, in the form of lower fuel consumption, savings and emission cuts. "Advanced systems in the ATC can bring down fuel consumption and reduce costs during airline travel, thus encouraging more people to opt for air travel," said Somasundaram.

During the trials, it was found that changing the conventional Trichy - Dubai route via Sulur to another direct route would reduce at least 15 minutes of travel time, thus saving fuel. The method is soon to be adopted by the airlines flying to Gulf countries.

For long, the ATC in Trichy was not on a par with the systems used in Chennai or Thiruvananthapuram, from where signals are usually shared during a crisis or if information is required on any flight data, but with the introduction of ADS-B, the radar will now have the capacity to cover a wide area and go beyond the Madurai airspace. The approach distance of the airline flying to any place can be shared easily so that airlines can fly in the shortest and the easiest route available without any hassle.

Tiruchi airport gets enhanced surveillance system

Image

Air surveillance capability of Tiruchi International Airport has been enhanced with the inauguration of the satellite-based Automatic Dependent Surveillance-Broadcast (ADS-B) system.

Tiruchi has become one among the 21 airports in the country to have in place the advanced ADS-B surveillance tool aimed at improving operational efficiency and safety.

Put in place after obtaining clearance from the Directorate General of Civil Aviation, the ADS-B would now enable air traffic controllers of Tiruchi airport to track aircraft more accurately.

The system would also provide shorter and conflict-free arrival and departure paths for flights landing at Tiruchi.

It would also reduce spacing between aircraft and position them better for landing, thereby reducing flying time and saving aviation turbine fuel.

Inaugurating the facility at the airport on Tuesday, V. Somasundaram, Member (Air Navigation Services), Airports Authority of India, said Tiruchi had attained global standards in air surveillance capability with the commissioning of the ADS-B facility.

India, he said, was fourth in the world to have in place sophisticated air traffic control and surveillance system. The ADS-B was a cheaper option than the radar system yet superior in surveillance. The government was trying to bring in improvements in aviation infrastructure, he added.

Sylvester Israel, General Manager, Air Traffic Management, Southern Region, said airlines had been requested to equip their fleet of aircraft with necessary avionics to avail the benefits of the ADS-B system.

He said the radar data of Thanjavur Air Force Station would be integrated with the Tiruchi air traffic automation system in the near future.

B.C.H. Negi, Airport Director, Tiruchi and senior AAI officials participated. Mr. Somasundaram also inaugurated the new Doppler VOR system, a navigational aid, at the Tiruchi airport.

Will not sell stake to any foreign airline, says IndiGo President Aditya Ghosh

The country's biggest carrier IndiGo, which is awaiting Sebi nod on its plans to tap the primary market in order to retire some of its debt and fuel its future growth strategies, has posted a phenomenal bottomline for the year ended March 2015. IndiGo president Aditya Ghosh in a conversation with Soumonty Kanungo shares his focus to keep a low-cost structure while remaining tuned to the big India opportunity.

Can our airports accommodate these new aircraft?

There are 65 airports in the country which can land A320, and we only fly to 33 of them. There are many cities which are of great opportunities, but IndiGo doesn't fly to them because we don't have airplanes. Cities like Leh, Dehradun, Port Blair, Silchar, Jorhat, Jodhpur, Udaipur, Madurai, Tiruchirappally (Trichy), Mangalore, Surat, Bhopal, Amritsar, Aurangabad – we don't fly there because we don't have enough airplanes and in the next few years, we will get there.

So, what are the new routes you are now looking at?

We focus on all three buckets: metro-to-metro, metro-to-non-metro and non-metro-to-non-metro. And we see passenger numbers growing in all three buckets. I obviously look at the Big India opportunity – a country of billion people has 400 commercial planes or less than that. A country of one-third our size in terms of population, say the United States, has around 6700 commercial planes. You can imagine the potential that exists. There is another stunning statistics. There are around 8.5 billion railway passengers in the country but less than 1% travel by air. If we could take only 1% of the rail traffic, we will need 400 more planes.

Anti-hijack drill at airport

An anti-hijack mock exercise was carried out at the Tiruchi international airport here on Thursday to test the efficacy and preparedness of all agencies while handling extreme emergency situation. All agencies, including Airports Authority of India, Central Industrial Security Force, airlines, fire and police were involved in the exercise that lasted nearly 30 minutes.

The exercise carried out once a year is to sensitise all agencies regarding their role and function in such crisis situation. A hijack situation was simulated at the airport as part of the mock drill with each agency carrying out its assigned role, airport sources said. The objective behind the exercise was to test the efficacy and preparedness of various agencies associated with the Tiruchi airport, a senior official said.
