Changi Airport in Singapore has successfully renewed
its accreditation under ACI’s Airport Health Accreditation
ACI introduced the Airport Health Accreditation
Programme in mid-2020 to enable airports around the world to
demonstrate that they have established health safety measures in
place throughout their facilities and processes.
Among the key items in the accreditation renewal
process was how Changi segregated its terminals into different
zones to minimise mixing of passengers and staff for improved
health safety in both the transit and arrival areas.
Airport staff wear different levels of personal
protective equipment (PPE) depending on the zones that they work
in and their interaction levels with passengers.
Mr Lee Seow Hiang, CEO of Changi Airport Group,
said, “Ensuring the health and safety of passengers, airport staff
and visitors will always be the top priority for Changi Airport.
We commit to work with our airport partners to maintain best
practices in hygiene and protective measures. By doing so, we aim
to instill a high sense of confidence among passengers and
visitors alike. With these efforts, Changi Airport will emerge
stronger when air travel eventually resumes.”
To-date, Changi is
also the only airport in Asia Pacific to be certified under the
ACI Health Measures Audit Programme (AHMAP), an external audit
developed by ACI World in partnership with Bureau Veritas.
