What Airports Have Category III ILS?  
User currently offlineBA From United States of America, joined May 2000, 11153 posts, RR: 59
Posted (11 years 4 days 8 hours ago) and read 21185 times:

I was wondering what airports in the world have Category IIIA/B/C ILS.

I know it's relatively few since CAT III is very expensive.

I think most airports that have ILS are CAT II, am I correct?

Any feedback would be greatly appreciated.

Regards

F9Widebody,

I'm sure it does, but I doubt all the runways are Category III equipped.

Armenia is the only country from the 3 caucasian countries (Armenia, Georgia and Azerbaijan) to have a CATII approach (soon to be CATIIIA):

Zvartnots Intl airport (new ICAO code:UDEE , from the previous code UGEE) will have a CATIII approach very soon! For now, the CATII on rwy 09 is doing just fine!

In Canada, it is pretty simple!

Only CYVR and CYYZ have CATIIIA approaches!

CATII approaches are available at CYVR, CYYZ, CYUL, CYHM, CYMX, CYYT, CYHZ and CYWG!

That pretty much covers Canada!

In Europe, all major airports are CATIII equipped!

Airports like EGLL, EGCC, EGKK, LFPG, LFPO, LOWW, EDDF, EHAM, EBBR, LIRF, LPPT, LEMD, EKCH are all, if I am not mistaken, equipped with CATIII approaches!

Thanks for all the replies.

Does anyone know what category Beirut Airport's runways are?

I think the old 18/36 is CAT I, the new 17/35 and 03/21 are CAT II.

Correct me if I'm wrong.

Regards

Thenoflyzone,

No, 17/35 and 03/21 I know are at least CAT II. I heard they MIGHT be CAT III (since CAT II is relatively easily upgradable to CAT III).

18/36 is CAT I because it's very old (from the 50's).

Perhaps you are confusing it with the OLD runway 03/21 which is now a taxiway. That one was CAT I.

The new 03/21 is at least CAT II.

Regards

The new 03/21 is the bright shiny runway on the far left side (close to the mountains):


The old one is the one directly parallel to it which is old and gray looking. It was converted to a taxiway when the new 03/21 opened. The new 03/21 opened in 1998.

The old 03/21 was only 10,433ft. long, made of asphault, was only HIRL (High Intensity Runway Lighting), and either didn't have an ILS at all, or was CAT I.

The new 03/21 is 12,467ft. long (big increase), made of concrete, is HIRL/CL (High Intensity Runway Lighting and Centerline Lighting), and has at least CAT II ILS.

17/35 is the one that is goes out into sea (shiny one) which is also CAT II. It opened in 2001 I believe.

18/36 is the one between 17/35 and the terminal which is the CAT I runway I mentioned earlier.

Regards

Hmm...according to airnav.com, MIA's runways that I have ILS are all CATI! Odd for such a major airport...

Definately Flyboyaz....

CAT III is essential for San Francisco because of the amount of fog there. Same goes with LHR and other foggy places.

BA,

It took me a little while to find it at faa.gov. Here is the complete list of CAT III as of July 2003.

For the US:
http://www1.faa.gov/avr/afs/afs410/73103/sec3cat73103.htm
and more on those listed above as restricted ops.
http://www1.faa.gov/avr/afs/afs410/73103/sec4cat73103.htm

Non-US airports approved for US operators to use for CAT III.

Except for Oslo - Gardermoen (OSL / ENGM) that has CAT IIIa installed on both 01R and 19R, all other ILS equipped runways in Norway are CAT I only.

However, there are some good news for my local airport, Stavanger - Sola (SVG / ENZV)! The Avinor Board of Directors have recently decided that we will have CAT II on our 18 runway by next year.
