New York Airport Jet Blast Accidents

by mhecht

Airports in New York can be very dangerous places to work. In addition to various trucks, tugs and other motor vehicles moving around the tarmac delivering fuel, baggage and cargo, the aircrafts at the airport can present a hazard to airport workers.

Jet Blasts

An airport worker can be struck by the jet blast from an aircraft whose engines have been engaged while stationary at a terminal or when the aircraft is moving. We have seen cases where an airport worker, going about his or her business is struck by the jet blast exhaust created by the aircraft’s engines.

If an airport employee is injured by a jet blast on the tarmac, the airline or an airport
operator, such as The Port Authority of New York and New Jersey, may be responsible.

New York Airport Vehicle Accidents
