The incidents of birds striking the planes around Bacha Khan International Airport, (BKIA) Peshawar are increasing due to poor sanitation arrangements.
According to the airport manager, due to poor sanitation arrangements around the airport, birds hovering on the dirt are causing collisions with planes, and collisions with birds can pose a threat to aircraft and passengers.
The district administration should ensure garbage disposal and cleaning arrangements around the airport, make restaurants and meat shops clean and tidy.
Eid ul Adha is also approaching and steps should be taken for this, the airport manager said in a letter penned to the district administration.
