Changi Airport is the first airport in Asia – Pacific to complete the Airport Health Measures Audit Program of Airports Council International (ACI).
The Airport Health Measures Audit Program helps airports address their specific risks and reassure passengers through on-site medical audits.
Completing this audit program means that Changi Airport has complied with a series of safety measures, in line with the recommendations of national and international authorities, and can display the associated SafeGuard label on its website.
The SafeGuard label is proof that the teams have been effectively trained in hygiene best practices and ensures the right protections are set up and implemented transparently.
This program was developed by ACI in partnership with Bureau Veritas. Bureau Veritas has developed a dedicated checklist covering the entire airport process, from management to operations, implemented through on-site assessment. The development of airport-specific checklists involved air transport, safety, and health experts.
ACI World Director General Luis Felipe de Oliveira said: “By being the first airport in the Asia-Pacific region to successfully complete the Airport Health Measures Audit Program, Changi Airport has shown they are committed to ensuring the health and safety of passengers, staff and the general public. This sets an example for the industry, showing how we can work together to support recovery and bring back the sustainable social and economic benefits of aviation we deliver to the communities we serve.
“Partnerships, like the one we have forged with Bureau Veritas, has benefitted Changi Airport and will support the wider aviation industry and help to push it forward during the recovery process and beyond.”
