Bogota’s El Dorado Airport achieves the ACI Airport Health Accreditation (AHA)
Airports Council International (ACI) has recently granted the Airport Health Accreditation (AHA) to El Dorado Airport. El Dorado is the first airport in Colombia to obtain this accreditation.
ACI’s Airport Health Accreditation programme recognizes the commitment to health and welfare of passengers, airport staff and the public, by supporting airports assessing the new health measures and procedures introduced as a result of the COVID-19 pandemic in accordance with ICAO Council Aviation Restart Task Force (CART) 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. “Airports in Latin America and Caribbean have acted quickly to this crisis adapting their procedures to the ICAO CART Recommendations and industry best practices. The ACI Airport Health Accreditation gives airports the opportunity to demonstrate to the travelling public and governments that the measures implemented are consistent with global recognized standards” said Dr. Rafael Echevarne, Director General of ACI-LAC.
This accreditation is a sign of the El Dorado airport’s commitment to the airport community and to all travelers. These initiatives are essential for the sector’s reactivation and for everyone to feel safe and confident that the measures we have adopted are the best. We will continue working and innovating so that El Dorado prevails to be at the forefront of biosecurity.
Congratulations to OPAIN and the team from El Dorado Airport!
