Helicopter Pad(s)

For emergency operations, Bangladeshi Defense Forces use a lot of helicopters from HSIA also. The operational base for these movements is generally Tejgaon Military Airport, +/- 10 KM from DAC. Few of the Private Helicopters operate from the adjacent part of this Airport. They have their own hangers for these helicopters. In time of crisis Military Helicopters also use this portion of airport. List of the Helicopter Operating Companies along with their fleet size is shown at Art No 4.9 Page 491

Bird Concentration

Bird concentrations may exist on or in the vicinity of HSIA due to low laying area around the airfield, during the period from December to May of the year. Bird shooters are posted in the maneuvering area to reduce the bird hazard. Moreover, necessary information about the location of birds, if visible, is transmitted to the pilots by Aerodrome Control Tower. However, pilots are requested to exercise caution while approaching to land and take-off.

Humanitarian Staging Area (HSA)

In fact, the present cargo storage facilities of the airport are insufficient, and the authority is facing tremendous problems to support the exporters and importers in their regular operations. So, it will be very difficult to handle huge influx of imported cargo in time of crisis. Considering the fact, the government of Bangladesh has decided to allocate a piece of land at Purbachal area (approx. 15 KM south-east of Airport). This will be known as “Humanitarian Staging Area” to be developed by WFP Bangladesh in collaboration with the Ministry of Disaster Management and Relief (MoDMR) which will be used by the UN and other humanitarian organizations and NGOs for managing their humanitarian cargo. The area is well connected by road and new extension of the town is going to be established there in near future. Suitable numbers of sheds and warehouses will be built in the area and cargo will be directly transported from airport to this area for sorting, storing and transporting for subsequent distributions.

A Security Director, with Chief Security Officers assisting him at various airports, heads the security function in CAAB. The Chief Security Officers at the respective airports are directly responsible for the security there.

Armed security personnel drawn from various agencies of the government are deployed at the entrances to the airports as well as on the runways and parking bays.

In short the Airport is well secured with the presence of significant number of Security personnel. Few salient points are narrated:

  • A dedicated police station exists at the airport.
  • All access points are guarded by security personnel.
  • Due to proximity of Bangladesh Military installations, RAB and Armed Police Bn, a large number of Security Personnel’s presence can be drafted in to support policing if required.
