Questions about the complaints of the air traffic controllers
ARUBA Ã¢â‚¬” The complaints of the air traffic controller (atc) about their work environment and about the important equipments that do not function was the reason for parliamentarian Rudy Lampe (RED) to send a letter with questions to minister Edison Briesen (MEP) of Tourism and Transportation.
Lampe wants the minister to react on the statements of the Aruban association of air traffic controllers. They say that the problems with flight delays cannot only be blamed on the air traffic control in Curacao, but also on bad policy of the Aruban government concerning air traffic control.
Lampe wants to know what measures he thinks to take on the complaint about bad policy of the ministry and the Aviation Administration, about the 30 million florins that was invested in equipment that doesn’t work. He also has questions about the bad working situation of the atc, like having to use binoculars. He asks the minister what he plans to do to prevent American Airlines to most probably stop flying the route Aruba/Puerto Rico. Can we expect improvements that would put an end to this serious situation soon?
