ACI extends global Airport Health Accreditation programme
Airports Council International (ACI) World has extended its Airport Health Accreditation programme which assists airports to demonstrate to passengers, regulators, and governments that they are prioritizing health and safety in a measurable, established manner.
The programme is supported by the International Civil Aviation Organization (ICAO) and, since it was launched in July 2020, more than 600 airports of all sizes have signed up to the programme.
It has been updated this year and remains aligned with the latest ICAO Council Aviation Recovery Task Force (CART) Recommendations – and with the ACI EUROPE Guidelines for a Healthy Passenger Experience, which in turn are aligned with the EASA/ECDC Aviation Health Safety Protocol – and industry best practices. The guidelines are also aligned with the ACI’s own updated Aviation Business Restart and Recovery publication.
Accreditation is granted for 12 months and, as the first airports were accredited in August 2020, ACI has opened the programme for airports to be re-accredited for another 12 months.
