The Airports Council International - North America issued the following news release:
Airports Council International-North America (ACI-NA) President Greg Principato today issued the following statement in response to the National Transportation Safety Board's (NTSB) Most Wanted List of safety improvements for 2013:
"We applaud the NTSB's efforts to increase awareness of critical investments needed to preserve the integrity of transportation infrastructure in order to ensure the safety of passengers and employees," said Principato. "Making prudent investments in airport infrastructure, including runways, taxiways and terminals, is essential to meeting today's needs as well as future growth."
Principato continued, "I am also pleased with the NTSB's focus on improving the safety of airport surface operations. As the NTSB appropriately notes, improving surface operations safety 'requires all parties involved in airport operations to work together to create a safer, more vigilant environment'. We continue to work with our members on this important issue.
We also actively participate with FAA's Office of Airports, Office of Aviation Safety, Air Traffic Organization, airlines, pilots and general aviation in the Runway Safety Council, working collaboratively to enhance the safety of their airfield operations."
