For this reason, all facilities to be built at the airports should be organized as a separate work experience group.

The Court of Auditors warns in the most serious way possible and says “there is danger on the runway”. These are very serious warnings for an inspection report. In order not to experience new disasters, the warnings of the Court of Accounts should be taken into consideration, and they should be carried out urgently and completely. “
