Flamingo Airport Receives Accreditation with Safety Certificate Issued
July 14, 2014 @ 11:09
Last month from June 3rd to June 6th, 2014 an extensive audit was held at Bonaire’s Flamingo International Airport, also known as Bonaire International Airport. This audit was conducted by Inspectie Leefomgeving en Transport from the Ministry Infrastructuur en Milieu, and was based on ICAO International Regulations. The aim was to determine whether the Flamingo Airport meets the conditions to be eligible for an Aerodrome Safety Certificate. We’re happy to report that the audit results showed that BIA meets all requirements and that the disposition, organization, equipment and the safe use of the airport are in accordance with the applicable ICAO International regulations. As a result, the Dutch Secretary of State has issued a Safety Certificate to BIA. This is a milestone for not only the airport, but especially for Bonaire and marks a point in its history. This makes Bonaire one of the first airports--if not the first--to be internationally certified in the region.
