Bristol International Airport welcomes the Air Accidents Investigation Branch (AAIB) report published today regarding the runway incidents which occurred in December 2006 and January 2007.
The report relates to four incidents which occurred under a combination of exceptional circumstances, including runway resurfacing work which takes place once every 15-20 years, heavy rainfall and severe cross-winds.
The Airport consulted at length with the Civil Aviation Authority before the runway resurfacing began and engaged the leading expert designers, engineers and contractors in this specialist field. Standard industry practices were followed and aircraft operators were kept informed of the work in progress.
Safety remains of paramount importance at Bristol International. The Airport is proud of its strong track record in this area and its reputation as a successful regional airport serving Bristol and the South West.
