"There's been some questions about how quickly we attended to the passengers…" he told The Beacon. "I reviewed all of the information today. The crash alarm sounded at emergency response centre at 9:27 p.m. and the passengers were all in the terminal just after 10 p.m."
Given the fact a winter storm was hitting the area at the time of the crash, the response was hampered by the conditions, said Wright.
"The big issue with the time was you had strong northwesterly winds gusting upwards of 52 knots and poor visibility, so there was only so fast we could get to the aircraft," he said. "When you do that, the first thing you have to do is get a response posture in front of the disabled aircraft and then assess it for leaking fuel or fire. Once you've done that, responders can check out the passengers and ensure the aircraft is completely vacated."
According to Wright, the airport's emergency response team quickly sprung into action once the alarm was sounded.
"When you first get word there's been an incident, because the visibility was so restricted you actually have to find it first," he said. "I mean, we were out of the firehall in 30 seconds, but you have to approach it with some caution because of the visibility. There may be someone on the runway, so you can't speed to the scene. We threw as many resources as we had available at it given the circumstances, so I'm pretty pleased with how the team responded."
Overall, Wright said the airport's emergency response team did their jobs properly and it's unfortunate the conditions that night didn't allow a quicker response time.
"I think our first response time was quite good," he said. "I do wish that we were able to get the passengers out of the elements quicker, but having said that, there are constraints on what you can do and how quickly. The location is three kilometres from the terminal building, so it's no quick commute."
Investigators from the Transportation Safety Board of Canada were continuing its field investigation in Gander today, and Wright expects the runway will be operational later today.
"They're going to start the removal of the plane in the next little while and we're hoping to have the runway open and restored by 5 p.m. today," he said.

"Patronage continues to trend upward and our prospects are very encouraging," said Gander International Airport Authority (GIAA) President and CEO Reg Wright. "The summer season was the strongest we have seen in quite some time. Passenger numbers at Gander have doubled over the last decade and we aim to accelerate that growth in the coming years."
In 2013, the airport posted a six per cent growth over the previous year, representing the highest passenger totals since 1989.
Mr. Wright said additional seat capacity, strong non-resident tourist visitations and a stable regional economy have all contributed to the increase in passengers.
"Airports are a strong bellwether for the economy they serve," he said.

“Gander International Airport is more than a valued part of the transportation network - it is a formidable economic engine,� stated Reg Wright, GIAA President and CEO. “It is also assuring to see growth in airport and aviation-related employment over the last decade, which has held its share of turbulence. This growth is reflective of the general state of affairs in our region; airports are seismographs for the economy and every up and down motion or fiscal tremor is generally reflected at the airport.�
The airport is a source of stable, year-round employment for the region, a major tax contributor and a catalyst that creates great benefit in the economy, Mr. Wright stated.
