SAN FRANCISCO, CA (WGGB) — San Francisco International Airport is changing its landing rules when it comes to foreign flights, in the wake of the crash-landing of an Asiana Airlines flight earlier this month.

The FAA is no longer allowing foreign carriers to land simultaneously, alongside another plane on a parallel runway.

Instead, foreign flights will have to come in one at a time, so that they’re able to use GPS instrument landings rather than visual landings, as they will now be instructed.

The changes come after Asiana Flight 214 crash-landed on the airport’s runway, killing three people and injuring dozens of others.
