CATIIIB For Abu Dhabi

The Abu Dhabi Airports Company (ADAC) has gained approval from the country’s General Civil Aviation Authority (GCAA) for Category IIIB operations at Abu Dhabi International Airport. It will cover the airport’s newly opened second runway and will apply when the visibility drops below 200 metres. Under the previous Cat II classification and rules, all take-offs and landings at Abu Dhabi airport were cancelled when visibility fell below 200m.
