New Covid-19 Security Guidance for Airports by ACI World

Airports Council International (ACI) World recently published comprehensive guidance for airports to implement at security screening checkpoints as they prepare to restart operations.

Named the Aviation Smart Security Playbook, the guidance has been developed in collaboration with Deloitte and is designed to assist airports in providing a safe, secure, and hygienic experience for passengers, staff, and the public amid the coronavirus (Covid-19) pandemic.

The guidance focuses on:

  • pre-security measures
  • security and control measures
  • primary security considerations
  • passenger expectations, and
  • creating a decision framework for control measures.

ACI World worked closely with Deloitte to present the guidance in a clear and concise manner that is straightforward for users to follow.

“The entire aviation ecosystem is adjusting to the complexities of the ‘new normal’ and responding to the needs and expectations of passengers is crucial in rebuilding confidence that air travel is safe,” ACI World Director General Luis Felipe de Oliveira said.

The guidance is aligned with the International Civil Aviation Organization (ICAO) Council Aviation Recovery Task Force (CART) recommendations which lays out a global roadmap for the restart and recovery of air travel. It provides airports with practical and ready-to-implement solutions to ensure operational readiness as they prepare for gradual increase in passenger traffic.

“Aviation will be a key engine driving the long term global economic recovery from the effects of Covid-19 and these guidelines are intended to assist airports during the initial phases of business restart as well as the longer-term recovery process,” de Oliveira added.
