Skopje Airport receives ACI health accreditation


Skopje Airport has been accredited by Airports Council International (ACI) in ACI’s Airport Health Accreditation Program, a new international health benchmark for airports around the world, designed to help reassure the travelling public that airport facilities remain safe and that precautions are being taken to reduce any risk to their health. According to ACI, 350 airports around the world have so far applied for the Airport Health Accreditation Program Certificate, while sixty of them have received it so far. The General Manager of airport operator TAV Macedonia, Metin Batak, said, “We have applied for ACI’s Airport Health Accreditation Program and the whole audit process lasted from February 2020 until August 2020. ACI aviation health and safety professionals were checking our airport processes, including our Public Health Emergency of International Concern, TAV Macedonia Airport Pandemic Protocol and Skopje International Airport Plan for Terminal Disinfection. ACI’s Airport Health Certificate is a global recognition and a proof of our continuous efforts and devotion to sustainable airport health measures. We truly believe that it will additionally assure our travellers that their journey through Skopje Airport is and will be safe”. Luis Felipe de Oliveira, ACI World Director General, added, “After reviewing the evidence presented through our evaluation process, Skopje Airport has shown that it is providing a safe airport experience for all travellers, which is in line with the recommended health measures established in the ACI Aviation Business Restart and Recovery guidelines and ICAO Council Aviation Recovery Task Force Recommendations, along with industry best practices. We feel confident Skopje Airport’s efforts will help us succeed in achieving this common goal”.

Skopje Airport’s certificate will be valid over the next twelve months.
