Piarco and Tobago Airports receive international Covid-19 accreditation

The Airports Authority of Trinidad and Tobago (“the Authority”) said that both the Piarco International Airport in Trinidad and ANR Robinson International Airport in Tobago, have achieved accreditation through the Airports Council International (ACI) Airport Health Accreditation (AHA) programme.

According to a statement, the Authority is the first in the region to achieve accreditation for two airports.

International recognition and accreditation have come to the airports in Trinidad and Tobago as a result of the activation of several health and safety measures at both Airports to protect travellers, employees, stakeholders and airport users from the spread of COVID-19.

The ACI’s AHA programme provides airports with an official assessment of how aligned their health and safety protocols and procedures, introduced as a result of the COVID-19 pandemic, are in accordance with International Civil Aviation Organization’s (ICAO) Council Aviation Restart Task Force (CART) recommendations.

The participation of the Piarco and ANR Robinson International Airports in this programme reinforces not only the commitment to protect the health of passengers and airport employees but also demonstrates recognition for the integral role of aviation in the endurance of the local economy.

The Authority said obtaining the accreditation signals to airlines, passengers and business partners that its facilities are prepared to safely and responsibly continue operations, in compliance with recommended local and international guidelines.

Airports Authority of Trinidad and Tobago continues to forge ahead through these challenging times, placing the safety of airport users as top priority and readying the airports to restore your confidence to travel once again. We thank you for your support and cooperation as we strive to create an enjoyable and safe airport experience for all stakeholders
