Abuja - The Nigerian Airspace Management Agency (NAMA) will next week hold a workshop aimed at improving safety at local airports.

Local and international stakeholders are assisting in planning the event set for next Monday and Tuesday in Lagos.

Olajumoke Adetona, Acting General Manager, Public Affairs, said the event will be held under the theme, "Runway Safety Go Team: Runway Incursion, Excursion and Confusion."

Managing Director of the agency, Ibrahim Abdulsalam, noted the workshop would culminate into the inauguration of runway safety teams for Abuja, Kano and Port Harcourt Airports.

"The responsibility for the safety of aircraft landing and taking off on the runway as well as surface movement of  aircraft rests with NAMA,” said Abdulsalam.

The establishment of runway safety teams is a critical aspect of aviation safety contained in ICAO Resolution A37-6 which makes it a requirement for runway safety teams to be established at airports globally.

The safety teams ensure that identified or potential hazards are promptly mitigated.

Membership cuts across aviation agencies, airlines and security agencies.
