Liverpool John Lennon Airport (LJLA) has announced the airport has received international recognition for the measures it has put in place to provide a Covid-secure operation to protect its passengers and employees.
The airport team has worked closely with the UK Civil Aviation Authority and Public Health England, LJLA is one of only a handful of UK airports to have implemented the International Civil Aviation Organisation (ICAO) guidance for air travel through the COVID-19 public health crisis.
The Airport needed to pass a detailed and thorough review of all its procedures, in order to receive this ICAO recognition, providing evidence on 77 specific required measures covering all aspects of the airport journey from social distancing, toilets and touchpoints to security processes and exiting the building in a covid safe manner.
The team at the airport also undertook desktop reviews, evidencing measures in place through assessments, procedures and schedules as well as an onsite audit taking place by a team of auditors and specialist Doctors.
Paul Staples, LJLA’s Operations Director commented:
“Colleagues across the airport have worked hard throughout the pandemic to provide our passengers and those working at the airport with as much protection as we can against the spread of Covid-19.
We have continued to develop the measures we have in place and to receive the recognition that these are now implemented in line with the latest international ICAO guidance gives passengers a further reassurance that their journey through the airport is as Covid-secure as it can be.”
The safety and security of all passengers and employees has always been the Airport’s top priority and throughout this crisis staff have continued to ensure that the passenger journey is as easy and safe as possible.
Passengers can continue to take advantage of Liverpool’s Faster, Easier Friendlier experience, whilst reassured that comprehensive measures are in place to reduce the risk of infection in line with the latest Government guidance.
