Flying during Covid: Amausi airport soars high with top global safety tag | Lucknow News


Lucknow: Lucknow’s Chaudhari Charan Singh international airport (Amausi), which is operated by Adani Group, has been accredited as ‘safe for travel’. The rating was given in the Airports Council International (ACI)’s airport health accreditation programme.
The global recognition was given after ACI reviewed the parameters based on 118 checks points. The ACI assessment covered the health and safety measures undertaken by the airport for passengers and staff in all the terminal areas including departures, arrivals and transfers, transportation services, food and beverage services, escalators and elevators, lounges, facilities and baggage claim area among others.
The accreditation is valid for 12 months.
Behnad Zandi, CEO of Adani Airports, said, “This accreditation is a significant step in the pursuit of reinvigorating air traffic in the wake of Covid-19 and the ensuing vaccination drive. It instils trust in health and safety standards practised at Lucknow airport amid the spread and control of the global pandemic. We remain committed to reinforce our preparedness with global best practices and thus ensure a safe pre- and post-flight experience for flyers.”
Apart from Lucknow, airports of Ahmedabad and Mangaluru have also been accredited as safe for travel.
Adani Group has been given the project to modernize and operate six airports — Ahmedabad, Lucknow, Mangaluru, Jaipur, Guwahati and Thiruvananthapuram for 50 years.
Of these, it took over the operations of Ahmedabad, Lucknow and Mangaluru in 2020. The company is also in the process of acquiring majority stakes in the Mumbai International Airport Limited with rights to develop the Navi Mumbai International Airport.
