All our airport processes, including our health emergency and disinfection plans were audited, as well as TAV’s Airport Pandemic Protocol, which has been implemented at Ohrid Airport during the pandemic. ACI’s Airport Health Certificate is a global recognition that Ohrid St. Paul the Apostle Airport offers safe journeys for our passengers”, Metin Batak, the General Manager of operator TAV Macedonia, said.
