alqabas reported yesterday that a group of air controllers at kuwait international airport are planning to raise a complaint to the head of civil aviation against air control management - the cause? pure neglect, which is jeopardizing the lives of every passenger in kuwait regardless of the airline.
it seems that 2 airplanes can collide anytime at kuwait airport as the flying distance between the planes have been reduced from 80 miles to 40 miles without having a back-up radar, which is against international laws & regulations set by the international civil aviation organization (icao).
what makes things even worse, is the air traffic management at the civil aviation who actually brought a back-up radar that is not compliant with international rules & regulations and which has been rejected back in the 90s as it proved completely unreliable - the radar suddenly shows virtual objects that don’t exist in real life or makes real life objects disappear from the screen!! go figure what the hell is happening in the skies!!
it seems that walking into a disaster is now only a question of time at an airport that already hosts a rusty national airline, suffers from mismanagement, and now lacks proper safety procedures as the cherry on top!
