Denver International Airport, Colorado, has announced that it received a perfect score in its recent annual inspection by the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA). The Part 139 inspection takes place every year as part of the FAA’s airport certification process to ensure that the facility meets the appropriate operational and safety standards.
Many areas face careful scrutiny, including the runway and taxiway operations, rescue and firefighting services, fueling facilities, night inspections, emergency planning and wildlife hazard management. With its latest round of checks, the FAA found no discrepancies at all between Denver airport’s operations and its requirements.
Kim Day, Denver International Airport CEO, said, “Safety is our number one priority, so we are proud to receive a perfect score by the FAA in this year’s annual inspection of our facility and operations. The airport is among the busiest in the world, with more than 540,000 aircraft operations in 2015. Everyone in our organization, from our 1,200 airport employees to our federal and local partners, are extremely dedicated to serving the traveling public and maintaining the highest standards of safety.”
