In coordination with the Luftfahrtbundesamt (Germany’s aviation authority), the other German airlines and the German aviation industry association (Bundesverband der deutschen Luftverkehrswirtschaft), the airlines of the Lufthansa Group are to adopt a new cockpit occupancy procedure as a precautionary measure. Under the new procedure, two authorized persons must be present in the cockpit at all times during a flight.

The passenger airlines of the Lufthansa Group will adopt the new procedure as soon as possible, in due consultation with their national aviation authority.

    NEW COCKPIT PROCEDURES

    Wizz Air confirms that it has revised its cockpit procedures and is rolling out a new procedure that ensures that the cockpit is never manned by one person only. If one of the pilots leaves the cockpit he or she will be replaced by a member of the Cabin Crew. The new procedure has already been endorsed by the Hungarian CAA.
