All measures in place to prevent bird hits at airport areas: Scindia

Civil Aviation Minister Jyotiraditya Scindia on Thursday said that all measures have been taken to address the issue of bird hits at airport areas and emphasised the need to keep areas clean. There have been incidents of aircraft suffering from bird hits mid-air as well as at the time of landing or take-off. “As far as bird hits are concerned, we have put in place all measures at airports, which includes the bird dispeller, sound guns and other methodologies that will keep birds away from airport areas,” the minister said.

While briefing reporters about the initiatives taken by the government over the last nearly nine years for wildlife conservation, Scindia also stated about the Swachh Bharat initiative in the context of bird hits. “Why do birds come to certain places, especially airports? It is not because they make their homes there but more because the fact that they are attracted to some objects in that area. Therefore, to keep areas clean and make sure that birds do not cluster around areas of transportation through which there may be a threat to airlines, it is very important for us,” he said.
