IFATCA has addressed the government of Argentina, through its President – His Excellency Mauricio Macri. We are extremely concerned about the disrespect for international safety culture standards at the Aeroparque Jorge Newberry airport. Following a single complaint from one pilot regarding an event where safety was not compromised in any way, the controllers working at the time were removed from their position, seemingly as a disciplinary measure. The information we have suggested they were replaced by staff who may not have been licensed or rated for the positions they occupied, clearly creating a serious breach of the applicable safety levels.

The full letter, in Spanish and in English can be found here.
