Vantage Airport Group, a leading global airport investor, developer and manager, has marked the successful delivery of its second biennial operations workshop, held this year in Nassau, The Bahamas with support from Nassau Airport Development Company (NAD), operators of Lynden Pindling International Airport (LPIA).
Nassau Airport Development Company (NAD) is a Bahamian company owned by the government of The Bahamas and operated by Vantage, making LPIA part of Vantage’s worldwide network of airports.
Almost 40 airport operations professionals from across the Vantage network attended the two-day immersive workshop, which focused on emergency preparedness and response, outcomes and continuous learning.
The workshop agenda included presentations, tabletop simulations and small group work on the latest on emergency planning, reporting and investigation, and recent technological advancements impacting the spectrum of airport operations, from passenger screening and security to training and incident management.
“One of the advantages of being part of the Vantage network is the opportunity to share best practices and learn from one another’s experiences,” said Lori Chambers, Senior Director, Operations, Vantage Airport Group.
“We work hard to foster a culture of collaboration, rooted in the principles of safety and security, across our network of best-in-class airports, and this workshop is a great example of that approach.”
“We are so pleased to host operations colleagues from across the Vantage network. Beyond the valuable shared learning on the subject of emergency management, this event offered NAD an opportunity to showcase the operational excellence our team delivers at LPIA every day,” said Deborah Coleby, Vice President, Operations, NAD.
Operations workshop delegates receive hands-on training with the latest virtual reality and simulation tools developed by Vantage to support safe operations at its network of global airports, including Lynden Pindling International.
