CI accredites Port Harcourt, Abuja International airports

The Airports Council International (ACI) has accredited two of Nigeria’s International Airports in its ACI’s Airport Health Accreditation Programme.

The accredited airports are Nnamdi Azikiwe International Airport Abuja and the Port Harcourt International Airport Omagwa, Rivers State.

This was disclosed by the Federal Aviation Authority (FAAN) via its Twitter handle after ACI made the announcement.

Both the Nnamdi Azikiwe International Airport and the Port Harcourt International Airport have become the 1st and 2nd respectively to be accredited in this programme.

The development follows efforts by the FAAN, led by the Managing Director, Capt. Hamisu Yadudu, and the Management team to ensure the safety and security of all travelers and airport users.

  • The Airport health accreditation programme is designed to assess how aligned airports health measures are with the ACI Aviation Business Restart and Recovery guidelines and ICAO Council Aviation Restart Task Force recommendations along with industry best practices.
  • FAAN recently beefed up safety protocols at all Airports, following the new wave of Covid-19, and a monitoring team was set up for each Airport to drive total compliance.
  • This is in line with the Airports Council International (ACI) Airport Health Accreditation Programme, which is designed to reassure the travelling public of the safety precautions being taken to reduce any risks to their health as well as maintaining secure Airport facilities.
