Aviation and Airports
Well over 100 aircraft-related incidents occur globally each year. Regardless of the size of the aircraft or the number of injured or deceased, accidents create a major disruption of service and require proactive planning and training to ensure recovery. Beyond general reputation and business continuity concerns, airline operators are subject to strict legal requirements in many countries that outline responsibilities and guide their response to incidents.
Likewise, airports are not immune from major catastrophic events. Since a majority of plane crashes occur on take-off and landing, there can be a tremendous impact on the airport itself. When an accident occurs at an airport, airport management faces similar challenges to airlines; they need to care for and support victims and persons coming to the airport for information along with gathering and sharing information with the regulatory authorities.
Kenyon has the experience and staff to assist airline and airport organisations, their employees and the public.
