CAAS' safety charter lifts off
Eighty organisations sign Singapore's first aviation safety charter.
The Civil Aviation Authority of Singapore, together with 80 aviation organisations, signed the Charter for a Strong and Positive Safety Culture in Singapore during the annual Aviation Safety Forum.
The charter signatories included airlines, aircraft manufacturers, maintenance, repair and overhaul organisations, the airport operator, ground handlers, and various unions and associations in the aviation sector.
The first-ever safety charter for the Singapore aviation sector recognised various safety-related challenges posed by the COVID-19 pandemic and expressed the shared commitment by leaders to jointly uphold safety standards and strengthen safety culture in their respective organisations as air travel recovers.
CAAS Director-General Han Kok Juan said, "Aviation safety must be a non-negotiable and the top priority of the Singapore aviation sector as air travel recovers, and we ramp up operations. The Safety Charter is a statement of the shared commitment by leaders of the Singapore aviation sector to uphold the highest safety standards as we work together to rebuild and reclaim Singapore's position as a global air hub this year."
The Aviation Safety Forum brought together over 200 leaders in the Singapore aviation sector in a physical meeting to discuss reviving air travel and issues in aviation safety as the sector prepares for recovery.
