- As a precautionary measure it must always have two controllers on duty for the foreseeable future. (Note: does this mean, they will have now 3 when 2 are needed, allowing always one to have a break?)
- The Swiss aviation ministry also decidec, that the person on duty at the time of the crash should not work as a controller "until further notice,". Spokesman Rene Aebersold said the suspension should in no way be interpreted as assigning blame but only recognizes "his psychological burden." Christian Weiss, a Skyguide official, said the controller remains on medical leave and is receiving psychological counseling. Aebersold said the office had issued the suspension just to be certain he remains off duty.
- The controller has been identified by media as a Danish citizen and father of three children who has been working for Skyguide for five years. His name has not been disclosed.
- The civil aviation office has issued a directive that Skyguide could only take safety equipment out of service for maintenance if it compensated with other measures, such as putting on extra control staff.
Any opinions on this?
