Airport Health Accreditation for Greenville-Spartanburg
Greenville-Spartanburg International Airport (GSP) has become the first airport in South Carolina to be accredited in ACI’s Airport Health Accreditation programme.
The Airport Health Accreditation recognises the airport’s commitment to prioritising health and safety measures in line with the aviation industry’s best practices.
The accreditation programme enables airports to demonstrate to passengers, staff, regulators, and governments that they are prioritising health and safety in a measurable, established manner.
“This programme is designed to help reassure the travelling public that airport facilities remain safe and that precautions are being taken to reduce any risk to their health,” said ACI North America’s president and CEO, Kevin Burke.
The Airport Health Accreditation measures cleaning and disinfection, physical distancing, staff protection, physical layout, passenger communications and passenger facilities. Accreditation is voluntary, with the request to join the programme initiated by GSP.
“The health and safety of all who pass through the airport is always our top priority” notes Dave Edwards, president and CEO of GSP.
“While no one could have anticipated the impacts from the coronavirus pandemic, GSP responded quickly with our Prepare for Takeoff COVID-19 response initiative. We are pleased ACI has recognised our ongoing efforts with the Airport Health Accreditation.”
As part of the accreditation, GSP will complete ongoing self-assessments and quality assurance, leading to a cycle of continuous improvement.
