Airport Health Accreditation for Jordan’s Queen Alia International Airport
AIG has announced that Jordan’s Queen Alia International Airport (QAIA) has received ACI’s Airport Health Accreditation in recognition of its efforts to deliver a safe airport experience to passengers in the wake of the COVID-19 pandemic.
As both QAIA and the aviation industry at large remain considerably impacted by the unprecedented global health crisis, the Amman gateway believes that securing this 12-month accreditation is paramount to restoring passengers’ faith in flying and encouraging tourists to return to Jordan.
“Gaining the globally-recognised Airport Health Accreditation is a vital step towards offering passengers peace of mind as they travel through our airport,” enthuses AIG Group CEO, Nicolas Claude.
“The accreditation not only serves as validation that our measures align with international guidelines and procedures, but it also reaffirms to our passengers and employees, as well as to regulators, government officials and the general public, that health and safety are not areas we waver on.
“On this note, I would like to thank everyone within the QAIA community for coming together to confront this year’s extraordinary challenges and adhering to the measures necessary for firmly positioning our airport on the path to recovery.”
ACI launched the ‘Airport Health Accreditation’ programme in July 2020 to assist airports in evaluating their newly-introduced health measures and procedures as a result of the COVID-19 pandemic against global standards and the national measures defined by each country.
With this accreditation, QAIA joins a host of worldwide airports working actively and consistently to reassure passengers that their wellbeing is a priority, airport facilities are safe and precautions are being taken to mitigate potential health risks.
