Airservices leads aviation industry at 38th Airline/ATS Safety Forum

1

Airservices Australia has shared key resilience measures to a 70-strong crowd of aviation leaders at the recent 38th Airline/ATS Safety Forum at The Emporium, South Bank, Brisbane.

After three years of COVID-19 event delays, safety representatives from across the Australian aviation industry flocked to the event, which carried the theme: “Resilience is our new normal”.

Claire Marrison, Airservices Chief Safety & Risk Officer, (pictured far left), said the forum was a crucial opportunity for Airservices to “discuss resilience in our new normal, identifying actions which we need to enact to ensure the safety of our services.”

“It was great to see such a wide representation from the airlines at our event,” Dr Marrison said. “While the safety community may not have been able to physically meet over the last three years, we continued to actively collaborate to address emerging threats to aviation safety.

“However, the forum provided a fabulous opportunity to really focus on how we operate in this ‘new normal’ and as an organisation it was critical that we gained deep insights from these key operators.

“We need to adjust our services to ensure resilience and enhance our ability to respond to the rapidly evolving needs of our customers and the travelling public.”

Greg Hood, Airservices’ Chair of our Board Safety Committee, opened the event, discussing Airservices’ response to COVID-19, the macro trends that are shaping that approach, and some of the specific ways we are modernising services and Australian airspace to maintain safety while responding to change.
