National crisis management committee stressed to tackle aviation disaster

DHAKA: Aviation experts yesterday stressed the importance of forming a national crisis management committee to tackle all kinds of matters smoothly after any probable accident made by local carriers in the future.

They also recommended formulating a central Emergency Response Plan (ERP) including role of media for all local carriers including Biman Bangladesh Airlines.

The experts made the recommendations at a roundtable titled “Flight Safety: The Way Forward”, organised by Aviation and Tourism Journalists’ Forum of Bangladesh (ATJFB) at a city hotel.

Civil Aviation and Tourism Minister AKM Shahjahan Kamal spoke as the chief guest while CEO of Bangladesh Tourism Board Dr NAsir Uddin, President of ATAB Monzur Mahbub Morshed, President of TAOB Taufiq Uddin Ahmed and Editor of Bangladesh Monitor were spoke as the guests of honor.

ATJFB President Nadira Kiron moderated the discussion while General Secretary gave the welcome speech.

The minister welcomed the proposal of forming a national crisis management committee for aviation sector and assured that he would consider the matter.

Kamal said the Civil Aviation authority is working relentlessly to ensure aviation safety and it has achieved safety competency above the global average in the recent time.

Head of Aircraft Accident Investigation Group (AAIG) Capt Salahuddin M Rahmatullah, Director Flight Safety of Civil Aviation Authority, Bangladesh (CAAB) Wing Commander Chowdhury M Ziaul Kabir, Biman Bangladesh Airlines Chief of Corporate Quality and Safety Md Anwar Hossain and General Manager Shakil Meraj, US-Bangla Airlines CEO Imran Asif and General Manager Kamrul Islam, Regent Airways Chief Operating Officer Hanif Zakaria and Director Marketing and Sales Sohail Majid, Novoair Head of Sales and Marketing Mes- bah-ul-Islam and Chief of Safety Captain Ashfaqur Rahman Khan spoke on the occasion.

Besides, General Secretary of Bangladesh Airlines Pilot Association (BAPA) Captain Sajjadul Haque, ATAB Secretary General Abdus Salam Aref, TAOB Director Taufiq Rahman, Wing commander (retd) Hasan Masud, former managing director of Biman M Abdul Momen, former pilots Syed Mozammel and AFM Nurul Alam also took part in the discussion, among others.

Wing commander Ziaul said Bangladesh Civil Aviation Authority recently achieved 75 percent of ICAO RI ranking on safety issue while the global average ranking is 60 percent.

He said the Bangladesh ranking is higher than many other regional countries as currently ranking of India is 57 pc, Thailand 41 pc, Qatar 63 pc, Bahrain 69 pc and Malaysia 74 pc.

“It’s a great success to upgrade our safety ranking from 50 percent to 75 percent in five years. But, we don’t want to stop here as we would like to achieve more than 80 to 90 percent of safety ranking like western countries,” he said.

Captain Salauddin, who is representing Bangladesh in the Nepalese National accident investigation commission to investigate the US-Bangla aircraft fatal crash on March 12 last, said as per the preliminary report the commission so far didn’t find any technical glitch of the crashed aircraft or any error of the pilots.

ATAB President urged to set up a monitoring cell at the civil aviation ministry to monitor regulatory issues regarding flight safety. Other speakers also recommended taking initiatives to increase capacity building of aviation reporters for further development of the country’s aviation industry.
