UK Airports Safety Week was created to improve the safety of airports, airport teams and passengers. As always, Cardiff International Airport was a supporting facility, promoting a day 7 programme of events to highlight safety issues.
One lucky pupil of ‘Ygsol Pen-Y-Garth’, Cara Mcellan won a visit to the airport after her banner won a competition.
Inside the terminal, St Johns Ambulance and Malpeet K9 academy gave demonstrations, whilst free yoga classes and activities were put on to showcase mental health issues and wellbeing.
Cardiff Airport’s Head of Airfield Operations, Russell Clements, officially launched the week’s events, and commented:
“It is a pleasure to support the AOA’s UK Airports Safety Week for the third year running, building on the success of the last two years. Safety and security is our number one priority at Cardiff Airport and we are focused on building a strong safety culture. Each member of the team plays a key role in understanding and implementing measures that affect our delivery of safety and security.”
It’s hoped that by the end of the week, every member of staff will have attended a workshop.
