Netherlands: study on runway incursions
24 April 2008

The Transport and Water Management Inspectorate Netherlands released a study on runway incursions for three regional airports (Maastricht Aachen Airport, Rotterdam Airport and Groningen Airport Eelde).
The Inspectorate noted in the report that there is a lack of objective criteria, standards and information available to record and analyze runway incursions in a uniform way.
According to the inspection, the risk of runway incursions is recognized by Dutch airports. The inspection is working together with the aviation sector in order to achieve a uniform interpretation of the definition and a reliable record of runway incursions. (IVW)
