Sunshine Coast Airport recognised internationally for keeping travellers safe

Sunshine Coast Airport has been given the tick of approval internationally for its focus on keeping passengers, visitors and staff ‘COVID Safe’.

In response to the COVID-19 pandemic, the Airports Council International (ACI) as part of its Health Accreditation Program has recognised Sunshine Coast Airport for its commitment to providing best practice health and safety measures in alignment with the Airports Council Aviation Business Restart and Recovery guidelines and industry best practices.

All passenger areas and processes are assessed including terminal access, check-in areas, security screening, boarding areas, retail, food and beverages, border control areas and facilities (in collaboration with authorities), baggage claim area and arrivals exit.

Sunshine Coast Chief Executive Officer, Andrew Brodie welcomed the announcement and said the international accreditation demonstrates the Airport’s ongoing commitment to ensuring the health and safety of all who work at or visit the airport.

‘With more people wanting to take advantage of the borders reopening and exploring not only our region, but cities across the country, it’s important for us to continue to build consumer confidence in air travel,” Mr Brodie said.

“It’s a tremendous effort by the team here to implement a range of measures and COVID safe practices to keep our travelling passengers and visitors safe.

“While the accreditation is an incredibly important milestone and achievement, it doesn’t stop there. We will continue to look for ways to improve our passenger experience as safety is our highest priority”.
