Airport Council International (ACI) has reviewed Budapest Airport’s epidemiological measures, and officially declared Ferenc Liszt International Airport as accredited in the program established by the council, aimed at restarting aviation, according to a press release sent to the Budapest Business Journal.
The Aviation Business Restart and Recovery guidelines launched by ACI and the ICAO Council Aviation Recovery Task Force Recommendations were created to assist the practical application of epidemiological protocols amongst airports, facilitating the earliest possible restarting of aviation and enabling companies who join to help make practices more efficient, by providing experience-based feedback.
Budapest Airport notes that it continuously maintains disinfectant cleaning at the airport. The operator also placed floor stickers, as well as prohibitive stickers on every second seat in the transit area, in the interest of social distancing. The wearing of face masks is mandatory for staff, and Budapest Airport has installed plexiglas screens between passengers and staff, wherever possible. The ventilation system in the terminals is regularly disinfected, to ensure an appropriate air supply.
The company has placed hand sanitizer dispensers throughout the building and provides an opportunity for passengers to check themselves and their baggage in using machines, without human interaction. A coronavirus test center available to anyone opened on the arrivals level of Terminal 2B in December. The station offers both PCR and rapid antigen tests.
