Attempts to Discredit Air Traffic Controllers in Lima, Peru is Unjust and Unsafe

Our colleagues from Jorge Chávez International Airport air traffic control tower are now being subjected to a culpable homicide preliminary investigation. IFATCA denounces this action and the methods the media and others have utilized to try and discredit individual air traffic controllers which were not deemed the cause of the accident.

Due to the safety critical nature of the work, air traffic control is a profession with high levels of responsibility. Coordination and communication in air traffic operations shall be precise, effective, and consistent to ensure the prevention of collisions between aircraft, objects, and vehicles. For more than 80 years the Peruvian air traffic controllers have ensured thousands of flights operating under their service reach their destinations safely, orderly, and efficiently by making second-by-second decisions throughout their shifts..
