The programme is designed to help reassure the travelling public about the safety of airport facilities and the precautions being taken by airports to reduce any risk to their health. The evaluation process carried out as part of the programme found that the precautionary measures being taken by Dubai Airports to provide a safe airport experience for travellers are in line with the recommended health measures established in the ACI Aviation Business Restart and Recovery guidelines and International Civil Aviation Organisation’s (ICAO) Council Aviation Recovery Task Force Recommendations, along with industry best practices.

 

Paul Griffiths, CEO of Dubai Airports, welcomed the certification as an endorsement of DXB’s commitment to health and safety as the key element of its response to the pandemic. “As one of the world’s leading aviation hubs, DXB had a critical role to play in restoring passenger confidence to enable the resumption of international air travel last year and help kick start the much needed global economic and social recovery. The crucial first step towards achieving those objectives was the implementation of comprehensive measures that demonstrated to our customers that their health and safety are a top priority for Dubai Airports. Our Dubai Airports team and partners have worked tirelessly to implement these measures and it is rewarding to see our efforts internationally recognised by the ACI.” he said.

 

“Aviation will be a critical driver of the global economic recovery from the impacts of COVID-19. The supportive regulatory landscape in the United Arab Emirates has allowed Dubai International Airport to rebuild operations with globally-recognised standards and protocols in place to ensure the health and safety of passengers and employees. These efforts are now recognized through the accreditation in the ACI Airport Health Accreditation programme and can serve as a blueprint for airports around the world,” said Stefano Baronci, Director General, ACI Asia-Pacific.
