UK will increase foreign aircraft checks
17 December 2007

U.K. Aviation Minister Jim Fitzpatrick announced that the number of safety checks carried out on foreign aircraft will more than double in 2008, from 250 to 600, and rise to 1000 inspections a year in 2009.
The increased number of safety checks, known as ramp inspections, will ensure that the UK plays its full part in maintaining the safety of the skies over Europe, as part of the pan-European, Safety Assessment of Foreign Aircraft (SAFA) Programme. (Department for Transport)
