Irish Aviation Authority To Give Landing Systems Major Upgrade

The Irish Aviation Authority (IAA) is reportedly set to replace instrument landing systems at Dublin, Cork and Shannon airports.

According to The Irish Independent, the upgrade is likely to cost tens of millions of euro.

Instrument Landing Systems

IAA said that it needs to replace the current instrument landing systems (ILS), which were commissioned between 2006 and 2007, "in the immediate future".

The development plans also include the installation of an ILS on the new runway under construction at Dublin Airport. However, it has been reported that it will require an advanced ILS.

IAA said that it expects the installation of the new runway to commence near the end of 2020 and be completed in 2021.


Work to replace existing ILS in the country's main airport will start in 2021 and potentially finish in 2022.

ILS replacement work will begin at Cork and Shannon airports in 2022 and 2023, respectively.
