LAM conducts operational emergency drill

On 23 May, at the International Airport of Maputo, emergency response exercises were held by members of LAM’s Care Team.

Members simulated hijack and bomb threat scenarios. These exercises were organized in partnership with Mozambican Airports and the Counter-Terrorism and Hostage Rescue Operations Unit. These entities assisted the families of passengers, hijack victims and uninjured passengers.

The Care Team is a 22-member group of LAM workers, trained under the Kenyon International Emergency Service, to assist families or passengers and crew in case of any incidents or air crashes.
