An instrument landing system (ILS) has become operational at Agra airport in India.

The ILS will be useful during foggy conditions, and will guide the aircraft in landing and take-offs in cases of visibility as low as 800m (2,620ft), says the civil aviation ministry.

Agra airport is controlled by the Indian air force and has a civilian enclave that is maintained by the Airports Authority of India for scheduled passenger aircraft operations.

The installation of the ILS will help connect the tourist destination to other cities in India, adds the ministry.
