BIRDS CAUSING TROUBLE IN DELHI AIRPORT

Birds at Delhi airport are posing a big problem for airlines, with several instances aircraft being forced to abort landing at the last minute due to excessive bird activity on the runway.

Occasionally several aircraft have to queue for landing due to the birds, contributing to the wastage of fuel. The problem exacerbates during the monsoon months due to the proliferation of insects attracting the birds.

The management of the Indira Gandhi International Airport (IGIA) said that several steps have been taken to control the bird menace, including the positioning of 25 zone guns along the runway, deployment of 50 bird chasers, installation of reflective tapes, bursting of crackers, scare crow devices on jeeps, regular grass cutting and pesticide spraying. But still more needs to be done.
