On Friday May 25th Aalborg Airport (IATA:AAL), Denmark, achieved CAT III Instrument Landing System status by using its new NORMARC landing system from Indra Navia.  The upgrade is expected to improve air traffic efficiency, reduce the carbon footprint and improve passenger satisfaction.

The project was a cooperation between Aalborg Airport, Danish air navigation service provider Naviair, and Indra Navia.  The latter delivered its NORMARC landing system as well as distance measuring equipment (DME).

Søren Svendsen, CEO of Aalborg Airport commented: “The installation process has run smoothly, and everyone has put great efforts into the project.  We look forward to seeing the results, as this will greatly improve the air traffic efficiency in and out of Aalborg.”

Aalborg is currently Denmark’s third busiest airport and has previously held Category II and I classifications. It handles both civilian and military traffic, and is located in the northern part of mainland Denmark.
