‘With these new Guidelines for a Healthy Passenger Experience at Airports, ACI EUROPE is responding and taking stock of the new reality resulting from the COVID-19 pandemic. This pandemic has in a matter of weeks caused a global crisis of unprecedented proportions. Aviation has found itself amongst the most exposed sectors, with air connectivity having literally collapsed – impacting tourism, supply chains, regional development, jobs and livelihoods.

Our purpose in creating these comprehensive Guidelines is to complement the joint EASA and ECDC COVID-19 Aviation Health Safety Protocol by elaborating on what airports need to consider and do to implement the changes necessary to restart operations. They provide practical step-by-step guidance to airports based on a “new normal”, reviewing all possible actions, methodologies, technologies and implications.”

Moreover, this survey also aimed at identifying key practical solutions to mitigate, as much as possible, the impact of this crisis on implementation projects.
