Safety Benefits for Runway Operations
Implementation of the measures contained in the European Action Plan for the Prevention of Runway Incursions and the European Action Plan for the Prevention of Runway Excursions facilitate a harmonized way of working across the European region and around the world.
The recommendations and guidance materials contained in each action plan raise awareness of what local runway safety teams can do to improve the safety of runway operations.
The Action Plans help to identify the operational hazards of working on and around the maneuvering area.
The recommendations proposed provide mitigation measures based upon ICAO provisions, and best operational practices.
Implementation of the recommendations can help to reduce the risk of runway safety occurrences by reducing the numbers of events or by reducing the severity of those events.
Improved awareness of runway incursions and runway excursions provides an informed picture of the state of runway safety through proactive reporting of ATM related incidents and accidents.
