The hub has announced that its current measures, including face masks and stringent cleaning routines, will stay in place despite the easing of restrictions
London Luton Airport (LLA) has been awarded the Covid-19 certification by the UK Civil Aviation Authority (CAA) and Public Health England for its implemented safety measures.
The endorsement highlights how the hub has met global health standards set out by the International Civil Aviation Organisation (ICAO).
“The safety of passengers and staff has always been our priority,” said Neil Thompson, operations director at LLA. “Achieving this accreditation from our regulator and Public Health England is a testament to that, and to the hard work our team throughout the pandemic. Alongside our Airport Health Accreditation from ACI, passengers can have confidence that travelling through LLA is as safe as possible.”
LLA was also the first hub in the UK to be recognised by the Airports Council International (ACI) as part of its Health Accreditation programme.
Some of the measures include mandatory face masks, enhanced disinfection, regular surface testing, installation of hand sanitiser, use of autonomous robotics, protective screens and floor markings. These are set to stay in place despite the easing of restrictions.
