New global accreditation from Airports Council International Europe


The Airport Health Accreditation programme helps airports by assessing new health measures and procedures introduced as a result of the COVID-19 pandemic in accordance with ICAO Council Aviation Restart Task Force recommendations and in alignment with the joint EASA and ECDC Aviation Health Safety Protocol and ACI Europe’s Guidelines for a Healthy Passenger Experience at Airports. 

Topics covered by the accreditation include cleaning and disinfection, physical distancing (where feasible and practical), staff protection, physical layout, passenger communications and passenger facilities. 

Luis Felipe de Oliveira of ACI said. “Our new Airport Health Accreditation programme demonstrates that airports are focused on the health and welfare of travellers, staff, and the public. This will be crucial as our industry begins to restart and prepares to sustain continuing operations, providing to passengers and employees high globally-recognized standards on health and hygiene, which will help to restore public confidence in air travel.” 

The Airport Health Accreditation certificate should be considered by all airport operators as proof to demonstrate greater readiness to build passenger confidence and trust.

ACI Europe represents 500 airports in 46 European countries, covering 90% of commercial air traffic in Europe involving 2.5 billion passengers, and 25.7 million aircraft movements in 2019.
