Evansville Regional Airport has been recognized for its health and safety. 

 

The airport says it’s the first in Indiana and just the sixth in the U.S. to receive the Airports Council International “Airport Health Accreditation.”

In a release, EVV said the accreditation affirms the airport “going above and beyond to ensure the health, safety and overall peace of mind of the traveling public.”

The program assesses an airport’s compliance with new health measures and procedures, resulting from COVID19 and in accordance with International Civil Aviation recommendations.

Areas of assessment include cleaning and disinfection, physical distancing where feasible,, staff protection, physical layout, passenger communications, and passenger facilities.

As part of the accreditation, EVV said it will complete an ongoing self-assessment and quality assurance to ensure a cycle of continuous improvement, as situations and requirements evolve.
