ARE RUNWAY STATUS LIGHTS THE SOLUTION TO REDUCING RUNWAY ACCIDENTS? Aviation is one of the most regulated industries, behind nuclear, to ensure operations are safe because of how unforgiving the results of mistakes can be. This has resulted in huge reductions in aviation accidents over time; however, more improvements can always be made. James Lewis, ATM Consultant of Think Research Ltd, investigated whether runway status lights could reduce the likelihood of high severity runway incursions.

Sustainability through Efficiency

With the arrival of both LCCs and leading Middle East airlines running lean business models, and with increasing competition from bare-bones airports running at out-of-city locations, today’s airports have to investigate and analyse every aspect of their operations to ensure efficiency. The upside is that with smart management and increased efficiency, a by-product in the form of increased sustainability comes free – in both business and environmental terms. An efficient airport is a sustainable airport.1
