The accredited Airports into the Airports Council International (ACI) Airport Health Accreditation Programme are Azikiwe International Airport Abuja and the Port Harcourt International Airport Omagwa.

According to Mrs Henrietta Yakubu, General Manager, Corporate Affairs, FAAN, 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.”

She said 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 Spokeswoman further said the accreditation is due to the efforts by the Federal Airports Authority of Nigeria (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.

Recall 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 safe precautions being taken to reduce any risks to their health as well as maintaining secure Airport Facilities,” she added.
