Guanacaste Airport receives Airport Health Accreditation
ACI has awarded the Costa Rican international airport Daniel Oduber Quirós – referred to as Guanacaste Airport – with the Airport Health Accreditation.
Airports Council International (ACI) has granted Guanacaste Airport the Airport Health Accreditation (AHA); rewarding the sanitary measures put in place by VINCI Airports in order to counter the COVID-19 pandemic.
After a complete evaluation of the sanitary measures, ACI rewarded Guanacaste’s efforts based on an observation of the processes of cleaning and disinfecting the site, social distancing markings, strategic organisation of terminal space and passenger awareness communication campaigns.
This makes Guanacaste Airport the first in Central America to obtain this accreditation, the second in Latin America and the Caribbean, and the third worldwide.
The airport’s General Manager for CORIPORT commented: “At CORIPORT, we have always been fully dedicated to monitoring this health situation, to make the passengers’ protection and safety our priority. This certification shows our commitment to maintaining a safe operation regardless of the current circumstances.”
The AHA accreditation has been created to reward airports for efforts towards creating a safe transit space for all. However, this recognition is also and mainly a means to enforce customers’ trust in travelling again, by guaranteeing a robust health protocol for them.
The corpus of the health measures set up at Guanacaste Airport is part of a bigger sanitary measures campaign organised by VINCI Airports throughout its 45-airports network: ‘Protecting Each Other’.
