 “A lot of resources have been invested in the training and up-bringing of our workforce, with the aim of enhancing our capabilities, skills and level of performance to match international standards,” said Ms Samson.

“We shall continue to strive to continuously exercise a high level of professionalism in discharging our functions as air traffic controllers,” she added.
