ADDIS ABABA AIRPORT GETS NEW RADAR

The Ethiopian Civil Aviation Authority on Monday announced that it finalized the installation of the primary surveillance radar and the automatic dependent surveillance (ADS-B) at the Addis Ababa Bole International Airport at a cost of 7.5 million USD. The authority bought the equipment from an Italy company called Selex. The authority said the new radar will enable it to replace the existing procedural system which loads the airtarffic controllers and force aircraft to hover around Addis Ababa during pick hour at nights. It also said that this will reduce cost of jet fuel to be used by aircraft of Ethiopian or other carriers.  The authority finalized every inspection on the new radar and launched an inspection on flight trial that will last for four days.
