Qatar Airways Introduces RNP-AR Approach Into Nepal

Qatar Airways has implemented a ‘required navigational performance – authorisation required’ (RNP AR) approach into Tribhuvan International Airport, Nepal. The airport has a complicated approach due to the challenging terrain of the Himalayan mountain range surrounding Kathmandu; the new RNP AR approach helps to reduce the pilots’ workload courtesy of advanced navigation equipment installed on the aircraft. The RNP AR approach allows aircraft to automatically fly accurate trajectories without relying on ground-based navigation aids, optimises airspace utilisation and reduces diversions in difficult weather conditions.
