EASA publishes SIB with recommendations to mitigate potential safety risks from airport operational issues

The European Union Aviation Safety Agency (EASA) published Safety Information Bulletin Operations - Aerodromes warning of possible safety concerns arising from challenges in airport operations in Europe due to the strong ramp-up in passenger demand this summer. Passenger numbers are now close to pre-pandemic levels in many locations.    

The SIB notes that there are no immediate significant safety or security concerns currently arising from the situation. The aim of the SIB is mitigation of the potential risks. Its non-binding recommendations are addressed to all relevant stakeholders.

Recommendations are clustered into four areas: Collaboration, Occurrence reporting and Safety Risk Management,  Administrative Procedures and Flight Time Limitations. The SIB further recommends consultation of other relevant EASA guidance and Safety Promotion Material.
