Bureau Veritas approves the hygiene measures in place in VINCI Airports’ European airports 

Sep. 14 2020

Bureau Veritas has approved the hygiene measures implemented by VINCI Airports, the leading private airport operator in the world, in its network of airports in France, the United Kingdom and Portugal. An auditing campaign was carried out to certify the proper implementation of these hygiene measures across its main airports in Europe.

This auditing campaign confirms VINCI Airports’ ambition to ensure the highest level of security for all of its passengers and teams so that traffic resumes in a stress‐free and sustainable manner. It also serves as recognition of the work carried out by VINCI Airports since early May, with the support of Bureau Veritas and its scientific committee, to establish appropriate hygiene measures for air travel.

The Bureau Veritas assessment criteria take into account airports’ internal organisation, protocols and documentation, as well as the hygiene measures in place throughout the passenger journey in all airport areas for which VINCI Airports is responsible. 

VINCI Airports has become the first operator to obtain approval from an independent third party of the hygiene measures implemented across an international network of airports.
