Ankara Esenboga in Turkey, Skopje in Macedonia and Zagreb airport in Croatia already received their certification.

 

Furthermore, Izmir Adnan Menderes, Gazipasa-Alanya, Milas-Bodrum airports in Turkey, Enfidha and Monastir airports in Tunisia, Tbilisi Airport in Georgia and Medinah Airport in Saudi Arabia have applied to join the programme. Co-operated by Fraport and TAV, Antalya Airport will also be accredited. 

 

TAV Airports COO Kürşad Koçak said “Aviation is a strictly regulated global business. Due to this nature of the industry, it’s one of the worst affected sectors by the COVID-19 pandemic. At the same time, it’s one of the fastest adapting to the challenges brought by the pandemic. In all the airports operated by TAV, we have fully implemented the precautions recommended by the authorities, and we had smoothly provided services to thousands of passengers following the easing of flight restrictions. Previously, we have committed to the European Union Aviation Safety Agency (EASA) COVID-19 Aviation Health Safety Protocol, and now we strengthen our pledge by joining the ACI Airport Accreditation program. Through immaculate precautions taken by airlines and airport operators, we believe that the risk of infection during air travel is minimized. Together with standardized pre-flight testing, we hope that borders can re-open and quarantine measures can be lifted, and the aviation industry can begin to recover from the worst crisis in its history.”
