Brussels Airport becomes the first airport in Belgium to receive European EASA airport certificate
August 04, 2017: The Directorate General of Aviation (DGLV) has awarded the European EASA (European Aviation Safety Agency) airport certificate to Brussels Airport Company. With this, it becomes the first airport in Belgium to receive the certification.
Airports receive an EASA airport certificate, on the one hand, when the infrastructure and the operational aviation processes of the airport meet the legal and regulatory safety requirements and on the other when the airport works with a solid and adequate safety management system. This Safety Management System must allow the airport operator to permanently monitor and meet the safety requirements, and must also enable the airport to manage the risks using a pro-active safety policy.
The Safety Management System at Brussels Airport consists, among other things, of daily inspections of and checks on the airport infrastructure and operations to assess whether all activities take place according to the international safety demands.
“With the award of the EASA certificate, the regulators confirm that Brussels Airport Company is able to closely monitor its safety level and is working towards continuous improvement. All employees with a job that is safety critical are repeatedly trained and tested. For this Brussels Airport has, among other things, introduced innovative technology, such as vehicle simulators. Our working methods, training programmes and campaigns are regularly adopted as good practices by other airport operators in Europe, the Middle East, Asia and Australia,” says Arnaud Feist, CEO of Brussels Airport Company.
Brussels Airport Company also has an internal and external audit programme, whereby recognised auditors specialised in airport operations and safety carry out audits every 3 years. For this, sixty parties are audited. Any shortcomings that are found during the audits are followed up and solved using action plans.
In total, 581 European airports must satisfy the requirements of the new EASA regulation and obtain the certificate before the end of this year.
