(15 Sep 2021) Changi Airport in Singapore has successfully renewed its accreditation under ACI’s Airport Health Accreditation Programme.
ACI introduced the Airport Health Accreditation Programme in mid-2020 to enable airports around the world to demonstrate that they have established health safety measures in place throughout their facilities and processes.
Among the key items in the accreditation renewal process was how Changi segregated its terminals into different zones to minimise mixing of passengers and staff for improved health safety in both the transit and arrival areas.
Airport staff wear different levels of personal protective equipment (PPE) depending on the zones that they work in and their interaction levels with passengers.
Mr Lee Seow Hiang, CEO of Changi Airport Group, said, “Ensuring the health and safety of passengers, airport staff and visitors will always be the top priority for Changi Airport. We commit to work with our airport partners to maintain best practices in hygiene and protective measures. By doing so, we aim to instill a high sense of confidence among passengers and visitors alike. With these efforts, Changi Airport will emerge stronger when air travel eventually resumes.”
To-date, Changi is also the only airport in Asia Pacific to be certified under the ACI Health Measures Audit Programme (AHMAP), an external audit developed by ACI World in partnership with Bureau Veritas.
