Air safety is top priority for Govt: Minister Tabar

Minister for Transport and Infrastructure Malakai Tabar says safety standards and safety compliance cannot be traded off against other aspects of government’s spending in the air transport sub-sector.

Tabar said that through this policy statement, Government requires the aviation entities, Civil Aviation Safety Authority (CASA), National Airports Corporation (NAC) and PNG Air Services Limited (PNGASL) to make passenger safety first priority.

He said advancement in technology calls for the upgrade of the navigation system using satellite technology.

This follows a recent renewal audit.

BARS was developed by mining resource companies and the Flight Safety Foundation to establish a common safety audit standard for suppliers of aviation services to the resource industry.  

It provides industry companies with the level of safety assurance they require, measured against very stringent standards.  

Only eight audit companies worldwide are approved to perform BARS audits.
