Torino Airport obtains renewal of the certification Airport PHealth Accreditation

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

This is the recognition that, after verification, confirms the correct and effective application by the airport of anti Covid-19 procedures.

The international program evaluates the health measures and procedures introduced following the Covid-19 pandemic, according to the recommendations of the International Civil Aviation Organization (ICAO – Council Aviation Recovery Task Force), 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 Airport Health Accreditation allows an effective comparison between most of the world airports of health measures to face the spread of Covid-19 and was obtained after verifying the alignment of activities with the guidelines of international health institutions and best practices in the industry.

After having analytically examined the operational and sanitation processes, the control methods and the effectiveness of the detection instrumentation, ACI declares that the Torino Airport has demonstrated that it has implemented all possible actions to offer a safe airport experience for everyone, recognizing the airport’s commitment to continuing efforts dedicated to the safety of passengers and airport staff.

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 examined and evaluated by ACI for the issue of the Airport Health Accreditation certification.

Andrea Andorno, Chief Executive Officer of Torino Airport, commented: “We are pleased to have obtained the renewal of this certification, which confirms our commitment to guaranteeing passengers a travel experience at the highest levels of safety.

“Torino Airport has continued and will always continue to implement all the necessary measures to minimize the risk of contagion between travelers and airport workers”.
