Taxiways or runways of airports are designed keeping various factors into consideration, with safety being the most important factor. Despite designing the taxiways or runways taking safety into consideration, untoward incidents have occurred in the airport due to problematic taxiways, problematic runways and temporary changes to the usage of the taxiways and the runways in the airports. The Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) provides hot spot location(s) in the airport diagrams, to facilitate the pilots to navigate the aircrafts safely at the hot spot location(s). The hot spot location(s) are static in nature without accounting current traffic and environment. The proposed solution provides contextual insights to the pilots of the aircrafts in the operating areas of the airports by considering historical and current traffic and environment. The contextual insights enable the pilots to be cautious before approaching the problematic taxiways or runways that have previously resulted or might result in untoward incidents. The contextual insights also enable the pilots to make changes to take-off or landing plans due to temporary changes to the usage of the taxiways and the runways of the airports.
