VGP – Cam Ranh International Airport was granted the Airport Health Accreditation (AHA) by the Airports Council International (ACI) at a ceremony held at the airport in the central province of Khanh Hoa on December 29.

The ACI’s AHA program is designed to help airports around the world prove to passengers, employees, managers, and governments that they place the health and safety of passengers as their top priority via the establishment of specific safety measures in the fight against the COVID-19 pandemic.

In order to receive the AHA certificate, Cam Ranh International Airport must undergo a strict assessment process for health safety measures at the airport, including cleaning and disinfection procedures, physical distancing, staff protection, physical layout, passenger communications, and passenger facilities.

ACI World Director General Luis Felipe de Oliveira emphasized that 2020 is an especially difficult year for the aviation industry. By earning the accreditation, Cam Ranh International Airport is committed to providing high standards of health and hygiene in line with global criteria.

It is clear that the airport is putting the health and well-being of passengers, employees and the community first.

Cam Ranh is the 4th international airport in Viet Nam to be awarded the AHA, after Noi Bai, Tan Son Nhat and Da Nang.

In 2019, Cam Ranh International Airport served 10 million passengers, including 6.5 million international ones.

During the COVID-19 period in 2020, the airport has safely served 3.5 million passengers to and from Khanh Hoa, and 72 flights bringing 10,680 Vietnamese citizens and foreign experts to Viet Nam from many countries.

In the time ahead, the Airports Corporation of Viet Nam (ACV), Cam Ranh International Airport, and relevant units are committed to well maintaining COVID-19 prevention measures, strengthening facilities and developing infrastructure to improve the quality of services and ensure safety of passengers, actively contributing to realizing Khanh Hoa Province’s tourism stimulus goals in 2021.
