Colombia’s Comptroller said Bogota‘s Eldorado International Airport has serious flaws in its operational protocols that threaten the security of the country’s most important airport.
Comptroller Delegate for the Infrastructure Sector Nelson Izaciga Leon made the remarks after an inspection of the capital’s international airport Tuesday.
The irregularities found by the comptroller included the ease with which anyone from the street could directly access the tarmac or the stairs to aircraft entrances.
Leon also noted the lack of security cameras in loading zones, which indicated that there was no control, on behalf of police staff or customs, over what type of things were entering the airport.
The Comptroller announced that minimum safety requirements would be issued and consequently met. He also mentioned that the audits and protocols realized at Eldorado Airport would be applied to other airports throughout Colombia.
