Torino Airport obtains ACI Airport Health Accreditation certification

Torino Airport obtains the Airport Health Accreditation certification issued by Airports Council International (ACI) World and ACI Europe.

The international program of the International Association of Airports evaluates the health measures and procedures introduced by airports following the COVID-19 pandemic, in accordance with the recommendations of the International Civil Aviation Organization (ICAO – Council Aviation Recovery Task Force), in line with the European Aviation Safety Agency (EASA), the protocol of the European Center for Disease Prevention and Control (ECDC – Aviation Health Safety Protocol) and the ACI Europe guidelines for a Healthy Passenger Experience at airports.

The cleaning and disinfection of the environments, the maintenance of physical distances, the protection of personnel, communications and facilities for passengers are among the elements taken into consideration by ACI to issue the Airport Health Accreditation certification.

Andrea Andorno, Chief Executive Officer of Torino Airport, commented: “We are very pleased to have obtained this certification, which confirms our commitment to ensuring passenger safety. Torino Airport has implemented a series of measures since the first hour of the health emergency to minimize the risk of contagion between travelers and airport workers. To name just a few: increased sanitation of the rooms, installation of the latest generation of thermal scanners, plexiglass barriers, upgrading of the room ventilation system with zeroing of air recirculation, continuous communication on all our online and offline channels. Furthermore, the opening of the airport Covid Test Point, the first in Italy to combine the possibility of carrying out serological and swab tests. Thanks to our constant commitment we have recently been selected among the first 3 European airports candidates, in our category, to obtain the ACI Europe Best Airport Awards 2020, which will be assigned in November”.
