Brisbane Airport achieves global COVID-safe accreditation

Brisbane Airport has received international endorsement for its COVID-safe practices. with Airports Council International (ACI) awarding it Airport Health Accreditation (AHA).

The accreditation is a global benchmark, independently assessing an airport’s alignment with ACI’s Aviation Business Restart and Recovery Guidelines, the International Civil Aviation Organisation Council’s Aviation Restart Task Force recommendations, and industry best practice in the fight against the spread of COVID-19.

The accreditation assesses an airport’s facilities and hygiene protocols across all areas of the passenger journey, from the carpark to the physical boarding of an aircraft, in adherence to international aviation recommendations.

Brisbane Airport’s COVID-safe plan was developed in collaboration with Queensland’s Chief Health Officer, Dr Jeannette Young.

Brisbane Airport Corporation CEO Gert-Jan de Graaff said the accreditation recognised the commitment of the airport and all airport-based companies to meeting the challenge of COVID-19.

“The health and safety of our staff, passengers, and visitors to Brisbane Airport is our top priority,” he said.

“The ACI health accreditation recognises alignment with industry best practice, hopefully reassuring all users of the airport that BNE remains a safe place to be.

“This global accreditation is an additional step in Brisbane Airport’s road to recovery, providing evidence to the public that we are good to go for safe travel,” de Graaff said.

Brisbane Airport is the third Australian airport to receive the accreditation, joining Cairns Airport and Perth Airport.
