Runway Safety

Runway safety is a vital component of aviation safety as a whole. We distinguish:

  • Runway excursions: Safety statistics show that runway excursions, the event in which an aircraft veers off or overruns the runway surface during either takeoff or landing, are the most common type of accident reported annually, in the European region and worldwide.
  • Runway incursions: The predicted growth in air traffic implies that the actual numbers of runway incursion incidents may rise.
