YFC First New Brunswick Airport to Receive Health Accreditation From Airports Council International

The Fredericton International Airport (YFC) is the first airport in New Brunswick to receive recognition of its health and safety measures through the Airports Council International (ACI) Airport Health Accreditation programme.

“Safety has always come first here at YFC. This accreditation further demonstrates to our travellers and community our dedication to globally recognized health standards put in place in response to COVID-19,” says Johanne Gallant, President and CEO of the Fredericton International Airport Authority.

Clear and consistent application of health measures throughout the passenger journey is an important step in the restart and recovery of air travel. More than this, it is a key step in keeping our communities healthy.

ACI’s Airport Health Accreditation program is a worldwide standard evaluating individual airport’s adherence to new health measures and procedures introduced as a result of the COVID-19 pandemic in accordance with ICAO Council Aviation Recovery Task Force recommendations. Areas of assessment for accreditation include cleaning and disinfection, physical distancing, staff protection, physical layout, passenger communications and passenger facilities.

“We are truly all in this together, and everyone at YFC has been working tirelessly to adapt, to evolve, and to ensure our workers and travellers remain healthy,” says Ms. Gallant.
