Lelystad Airport fully equipped with CEDD AGL technology

Lelystad Airport, part of Schiphol Group, is the most important airport in The Netherlands for general aviation. To prepare the airport for commercial traffic in 2018, the runway was extended and air traffic control as well as an instrument landing system were introduced. The airfield ground lighting on the runway, taxiways and apron areas were upgraded with CEDD airfield ground lighting technology.

The fast response times of the CEDD technology, with feedback within 500 ms, make the airport operations faster and safer than with traditional airfield lighting technology. Furthermore, due to the lack of transformers and connectors, the technology is far more resistant against water ingress in pits and conduits.

Lelystad Airport is now fully equipped with CEDD approach, runway and taxiway fixtures and operational since 2019.
