Airside International has reported that a catering vehicle and ground handling vehicle have collided at Dabolim Airport, leaving a ground handling team member in critical condition.

Airside International report that it is being claimed, but yet unverified, that “failure of hydraulic movement” of the catering vehicle was the cause of the incident. If this is proven to be the case, it again highlights the importance of pre-use checks.

Our thoughts are with all those affected at this time. We understand that every airside operation involves risk, but with the right training in place such tragedies can be prevented.
