Ghana’s Kotoka International Airport has been awarded the Airports Council International’s (ACI) Airport Health Accreditation certificate.
The ACI Airport Health Accreditation (AHA) programme enables airports to demonstrate to passengers, staff, regulators and governments that they are prioritizing health and safety in a measurable and established manner.
It also allows airports to validate their own measures throughout their facilities and processes.
This accreditation is in recognition of the implementation of the recommended health measures in the ACI Aviation Business Restart and Recovery guidelines, and the ICAO Council Aviation Recovery Task Force (CART) Recommendations, along with industry best practices.
CART guidance addresses elements for Airport terminal building, cleaning, disinfecting and hygiene, physical distancing, staff protection, access, check-in area, security screening, airside areas, gate installations, passenger transfer, disembarking, baggage claim and arrival areas.
Ghana is the 2nd airport in Africa to receive the ACI Airport Health Accreditation certificate.
Sir Seewoosagur Ramgoolam International Airport, Mauritius, is the first airport in Africa to be accredited in the ACI Airport Health Accreditation (AHA) programme.
