Airstrip surveys are continuing! Meanwhile, we have 87 airstrips re-opened!
However, we know that there are many airstrips not yet listed as open for MAF operations. Surveying more than 200 airstrips is quite a huge task that takes time. The gathered data by our RAA and MAF team then needs to be assessed for the involved risks and safety of our operations and/or guidelines/advice for more needed maintenance will have to be communicated with the community etc.
Our team will contact the MAF agent and advise the scope of work needed in the event that the airstrip isn’t safe for operations yet. But this might be a few weeks down the road. Please bear with us.
We’ll update the list in a few weeks’ time again.
Thank you for your cooperation and assistance to make our operation safer!
