• Thales will supply one ILS/DME and all related services to Al-Ashraf International Airport.
• Thales is a leading player in the Modernization of Iraq’s Airspace.
• Najaf Al-Ashraf Airport is experiencing significant growth with many international carriers running scheduled services.

During the ATC Global exhibition in Dubai, Thales is pleased to announce that it has been awarded a contract to supply one Instrument landing system with distance measuring equipment (ILS/DME) and all related services for Najaf Al-Ashraf International Airport in Najaf.

The city of Najaf, situated in southern Iraq is the site of the Imam Ali Shrine and is an important religious destination, playing host to millions of pilgrims each year. Najaf Al-Ashraf airport has therefore been experiencing significant traffic growth in recent years, with many international airlines like Gulf Air and Turkish Airlines running regular services.

The contract signed between Thales and Najaf Al-Ashraf Airport Authority is part of the country’s continuing efforts to modernize current navigation and surveillance capabilities, ensuring a significant improvement of safety and efficiency.

Thales has been a partner to Al-Najaf Airport Authority for more than eight years. With a base of over 7,000 units deployed worldwide, Thales is the world leader in the supply of Navaids.

(1) The Instrument Landing System increases safety and reliability and, as a result, enhances the efficiency of approach and landing procedures especially under poor weather and visibility conditions. ILS is a proven system with ICAO Annex 10 Cat. III performance which provides pilots with information to enable guidance during descent and with deviation information from a defined approach path down to and along the runway surface.
(2) The Distance Measuring Equipment system provides pilots with distance information between the aircraft and the location of the DME ground equipment. The system is used for both en-route and terminal area guidance.
