The Civil Aviation Authority on Friday began operations to limit bird activity at Karachi’s Jinnah International Airport.
According to an official, the staff concerned had launched this drive at the direction of the chief operating officer to limit bird activity at the airport and in the area around the airport.
The airport manager added that around more than twenty-five birds had been hunted on the runway by bird shooters.
One of the main reasons for the movement of birds is the landfill in an area near the airport that attracts all the birds.
At the Eid al-Adha festival, Pakistan’s Civil Aviation Authority has started a public awareness campaign to avoid the pile of rubbish.
The airport manager stated that most people dump the remains of sacrificial animals near the airport which attract birds and thus create chaos in air traffic.
People are advised by officials to pack the remains of animals in appropriate garbage bags and dispose of them in designated places.
Airport authorities regularly assign bird shooters to target all birds that block air traffic.
Regularly, authorities take every step to limit bird activity. Actions include; pressure horns, bird shooters, scarecrow, patrol vehicles, firecrackers, and acoustic weapons.
As per the latest report, the aviation authorities are considering getting a sophisticated machine to control bird activity.
