Stansted, assisted by the CAA and Public Health England, has established and maintained a range of Covid-secure activities to meet international guidance on Covid safety measures set out by the International Civil Aviation Organization (ICAO).

The assessment looks at compliance with guidance on general hygiene, cleaning, masks and face coverings, health screening and declarations, the mental health and well-being of employees and passengers, as well as specific steps for passengers with reduced mobility.

Stansted is the first UK airport to receive the official assurance recognition outside of the three participants of the pilot scheme which included East Midlands Airport, Heathrow and British Airways.

Steve Griffiths, London Stansted’s Managing Director, said: “This recognition is great testament and credit to the hard work of our teams across the business to keep our passengers and colleagues safe, and ensure we’re ready for the restart of international travel in the coming weeks.

“We can’t wait to welcome back our passengers and this accreditation and recognition should provide them with the confidence and reassurance we have done all we can to make them feel safe while at the airport.”
