On 18th April 2018 Kraków Airport became a signatory to Just Culture Declaration aimed at building a just treatment culture. The signatories to the Declaration undertake to implement a just treatment culture and promote actions aimed at improving aviation safety.
For a number of years the concept of Just Culture has been a subject of efforts made in the aviation industry. The declaration, prepared by the Polish Civil Aviation Authority, draws on European Corporate Just Culture Declaration, signed nearly three years ago by Violeta Bulc, European Commissioner for Mobility and Transport, as well as representatives of the aviation sector.
Safety is a key factor in the functioning and sustainable development of air transport. Each employee plays a pivotal role in the safe aviation system. Reporting events helps to identify threats and manage risks which these threats entail.
Just Culture Declaration sets out rules that are geared towards encouraging staff members who are engaged in safety-related activities to report unwanted events without fear of consequences. On behalf of Kraków Airport, the Declaration was signed by Radosław Włoszek, CEO.

The Declaration is open and the Polish Civil Aviation Authority encourages the representatives of the aviation sector to sign and promote it.
