Press Release Michael La Pier, AAEExecutive DirectorMonterey Regional Airport

MONTEREY, CA, May 17, 2023 – Monterey Regional Airport (MRY) announces the restoration of the Instrument Landing System Glide Slope Antenna.

Due to unscheduled repairs to navigation equipment that allow aircraft to land in foggy conditions, flights into and ultimately out of MRY had significant delays that began on Friday, May 12, 2023.

FAA worked diligently to acquire and install new glide slope antenna equipment that was commissioned on Wednesday, May 17, 2023.   With the restoration of the new equipment completed, air traffic should return to normal operations.  With the very dense fog that the area has experience over the past five nights, some flights might still experience landing delays if the fog ceiling drops below 200 feet.

“We want to thank the Federal Aviation Administration, Monterey SSC team for making this restoration a top priority,” states Monterey Regional Airport Executive Director Michael La Pier.

We apologize for any disruptions that passengers experienced to their travel plans.

Passengers are encouraged to continue to monitor the status of their flight ( while utilizing the space to ensure on-time boarding.
