ACI Congratulates Nassau's Lynden Pindling International Airport for obtaining the Airport Health Accreditation

Airports Council International Latin America and the Caribbean (ACI-LAC) congratulates Nassau´s Lynden Pindling International Airport for obtaining ACI’s Airport Health Accreditation.

The ACI Airport Health Accreditation (AHA) program provides airports with an assessment of how aligned their health measures are with the ACI Aviation Business Restart and Recovery guidelines and the International Civil Aviation Organization’s (ICAO) Council Aviation Restart Task Force recommendations along with industry best practices and the World Health Organization.

 Aviation and tourism are key economic drivers for national economies and society at large, particularly in island nations.  “We are pleased to have obtained this health accreditation which is a positive milestone on our road to economic and tourism recovery,” said Ms. Vernice Walkine, President and Chief Executive Officer at the Nassau airport.  “The airport and its tourism partners including the Bahamas Ministry of Tourism and the Nassau Paradise Island Promotion Board are deeply committed to creating an environment where travelers can return to The Bahamas and indeed our region, to experience all we have to offer.”

Dr. Rafael Echevarne, Director General of ACI-LAC, said: “By obtaining the AHA, Nassau’s LPIA demonstrates its commitment to protecting the health of passengers and airport employees and its contribution to the economic and social recovery and development”.
