I've not heard about any improvement of the ILS system at DAC for a long time, and do frequently face delays in flying to DAC (from anywhere), during the winter season - if the flight lands in the early morning to noon hours. Usually the cryptic response given for the delay is "Fog", which I take it as "Dense" Fog. A few times each season, international flights are delayed a few days due to a "blanket" of fog that does not seem to shift, and it's pretty cold and miserable at that time as well.
Any reason why ILS isn't able to be approved for such conditions ? Is it a regulatory/technical/administrative issue, or is it that the weather in DAC is really so abnormal from other destinations that there are other mitigating factors. One issue I am aware of is that DAC continues to have only a single runway, and all the aircraft usually arrive in close proximity, but why no landings in the early a.m. slots ?
What news of any expansion of DAC to either A380, or multi-runway, or god forbid another terminal ? The airfield is pretty large on the western edge for a 2nd runway or a another terminal. Perhaps the cargo facilities could move over there, allowing a 3rd terminal to replace it. Isn't traffic to BD growing by appreciable numbers with peaks in Winter, February, the two Eid festivals and also Summer months ?
