ACI announces health audit program for airports

ANKARA - Airports Council International (ACI) World announced a partnership Monday with Bureau Veritas, a company specialized in testing, inspection and certification, to propose a new 'Airport Health Measures Audit' program.

ACI said in a statement that the COVID-19 pandemic has brought airports to a near standstill, and a commitment to the health and welfare of travelers, staff and the public is key to support the airport industry’s recovery.

The aim of the program is to support airport operators by addressing their specific risks and by reassuring passengers.

It said airports that successfully pass on-site audits covering all steps of the passenger journey and based on international recommendations will be awarded the SafeGuard label, which addresses specific risks to all places where people live and work, providing a continuous reference to travelers along their journey.
