Airports from coast to coast, including Kelowna International (YLW) have been participating in Airports Safety Week 2023.
Led by the Canadian Airports Council (CAC), the focus was on passenger and employee safety.
“Safety is at the core of our operations at YLW,” said Sam Samaddar, CEO. “Airport Safety Week brings the entire campus together; it shows collaboration of all operators here at YLW to ensure safety at the airport.”
During the event, which ran from Sep. 18 to 22, YLW participated in a series of presentations and discussions covering a wide range of safety themes.
One of the highlights was the FOD walk.
Airport staff walked the apron, identifying and removing any debris that could potentially pose safety risks to aircraft and personnel. Multiple FOD checks are completed throughout the operational day by airport staff.
