International Civil Aviation Organization (ICAO) and Airservices consider runway safety to be one of their highest priorities as it remains one of the most serious threats to aviation safety. Airservices continues to work with the aviation industry to improve runway safety.

Runway safety includes runway incursions, runway excursions and runway confusion. Improving runway safety requires collaboration from all stakeholders, including ATC, Airports, CASA, Aircraft Operators and anyone else who operates around a runway.
