NDO – Noi Bai International Airport has been recognised by the Airports Council International (ACI) for ensuring safe measures against the COVID-19 pandemic in its operation.

An online ceremony was held at the Airport Operations Control Centre at Noi Bai International Airport on November 27 to grant the Airport Health Accreditation (AHA) certification to the Vietnamese airport.

The ACI Airport Health Accreditation is designed to help airports around the world prove to passengers, their employees, regulators, and governments that they place top priority on the health and safety of passengers through the establishment of specific safeguard measures in the fight against the COVID-19 pandemic.

To be certified by the ACI, Noi Bai Airport was assessed across a number of categories including cleaning and disinfection, physical distancing (where feasible and practical), staff protection, physical layout, passenger communications and passenger facilities.

General Director of ACI Luis Felipe de Oliveira said that Noi Bai International Airport provides the safest airport experiences for all passengers following the ACI guidelines of Aviation Business Restart and Recovery and recommendations for the restoration of aviation operations in the COVID-19 period by the International Civil Aviation Organisation - ICAO Council Aviation Restart Task Force recommendations.

“The AHA certification is the result of the all-out efforts of all the staff at Noi Bai International Airport in the implementation of COVID-19 prevention measures, creating trust among passengers in using the services at the airport,” said Director of the Noi Bai International Airport Nguyen Duc Hung.
