An investigation conducted May this year revealed that several planes took off at night without runway lights at the Gladstone airport.
According to the report, the runway lights are pilot-controlled and that two airline companies have established measures to prevent accidents in the future.
Gladstone airport’s chief executive Phillip Cash said in an ABC report that safety concerns over runway safety have been mostly resolved. He said he has been waiting for the report to see if they still need to do any future actions.
“There was basically the investigation to come and so everybody’s been waiting to see what the ATSB had to say and what their recommendations and findings will be,” said Mr Cash.
“The ATSB did a very thorough investigation and they came up with some pretty practical outcomes and I think that’s great.”
“The report recommends some good action and we’ve seen the airlines have taken that up and it’s probably resolved the issue,” he said.
“What we’ll do is talk to the airlines having seen this report now and look at how we can contribute to the best outcome.”
