David Knorr, Senior Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) Representative to Europe visited Ben Gurion International Airport last week to study safety improvements made by the Israeli Airport Authority.

 

The U.S. Federal Aviation Administration restored in 2012 Israel to the Category 1 safety status it lost in December 2008. Knorr examined the runway # 21 which had been opened at Ben Gurion Airport and noted that the new runway – along with other recent changes made at Ben Gurion Airport – would help improve safety for flyers.

 

The runway project took about four years to complete and cost about NIS 1 billion. In addition to the new runway, safety improvements were made to the existing runways, Ben Gurion officials said, ensuring that there was much less chance of collisions or other mishaps on the ground. During the visit Knorr met Civil Aviation Authority Director Giora Romm and Udi Bar-Oz, Deputy Director General, Operations at Israel Airports Authority.
