Abstract: Implementation of safety oversight programs in Aerodromes is an important aspect in ensuring safe travel. Safe operations in aerodromes with high volumes of air traffic requires a systematic approach to management of safety and safety assurance is only possible with enhanced communication among the various stakeholders. Jomo Kenyatta International Airport as a regional hub has experienced steady growth of passenger volumes connecting various destinations in Africa and around the world since late 1950s. This growth is not at par with the existing infrastructure, creating capacity challenges, which requires necessary mitigation to maintain acceptable safety levels. With varying stakeholders, the drive for better safety communication cannot be overemphasized. The research examined influence of safety communication on implementation of safety oversight program at Jomo Kenyatta International Airport. The variables under study were modes of communication, information management, feedback mechanisms and communication barriers. The study adopted descriptive research with participants from Kenya Airports and Civil Aviation Authority. Data was collected through questionnaires and analyzed using SPSS to derive descriptive and inferential statistics to make meaning out of the data and resultant findings. Analysis of Variance tested the hypothesis and regression analysis giving the impact of independent variable on the dependent. A model Y =2.54 +6.32X+0.29 resulted from regression analysis. The study findings showed significant influence on the implementation of safety oversight programs in aerodromes. The correlation coefficient was 0.725 and a coefficient of determination of 0.511 indicating a 51 % variability in implementation attributable to Safety communication. Based on the study findings, Airports and Civil Aviation Authorities should choose the correct mode of communication while managing information to enhance performance. In addition, there is great need to improve th
