According to news reports, significant design adjustments would be necessary, thus the government has given Boeing until the end of December 2025 to ensure that its 787 Dreamliners are compliant with the GAGAN navigation system.

Indian Space Research Organization (ISRO) and the Airports Authority of India have collaboratively developed GPS Aided Geo Augmented Navigation, or GAGAN (AAI).

According to a statement released on August 18 by the civil aviation ministry, Boeing 787 aircraft is free from the GAGAN compliance requirement until December 31, 2025.

After careful consideration and discussions with AAI and DGCA, the senior ministry official stated that the compliance requirement for Boeing 787 aircraft has been extended (Directorate General of Civil Aviation).

The official added that all other aircraft must ensure compliance and that only Boeing 787 aircraft are free from the GAGAN compliance requirement for the time being.

Currently, the wide-body Boeing 787 aircraft are flown by Air India and Vistara. About 27 of these aircraft are owned by Air India, and Vistara has so far received two of them.

According to the website of the aircraft manufacturer, the Boeing 787-8 Dreamliner can accommodate 248 passengers, the 787-9 can accommodate 296 passengers, and the 787-10 can accommodate 336 passengers.

With the ability to expand to neighbouring FIRs, GAGAN, a space-based augmentation system, aids in providing the best navigational services over Indian FIRs.

The accuracy, integrity, and availability standards for navigation are not met by GPS alone. According to the AAI website, GAGAN offers critical information about the health of each satellite in addition to correcting GPS signal mistakes brought on by ionospheric disturbances, timing, and satellite orbit problems.

For its member governments and other stakeholders, the International Civil Aviation Organization (ICAO), an organization under the United Nations, creates policies and standards.
