Quality Seal Reconfirmed: "Safe from Covid-19"
TÜV Hessen lauds Frankfurt Airport's efforts to protect passengers and staff from infection
Last year, Frankfurt Airport became the first German airport to receive the new "Safe from Covid-19" quality seal from TÜV Hesse, the technical inspection association of the state of Hesse. Frankfurt Airport already received its first TÜV quality certification from the Tüv Hesse testing organization in July 2020, valid six months until January 2021. Since then, the airport’s operator Fraport has continuously optimized measures to meet the air travel industry’s protection and hygiene requirements in response to the ongoing pandemic situation.
Over the course of several days, TÜV Hesse’s team once again examined the entire passenger travel process at FRA – while also checking the measures that have been taken throughout the terminals to safeguard those who work at the airport. The auditors praised the wide-ranging hygiene measures, the intensive communication with target groups, and the excellent preparation and protection of personnel. With its own medical center and special Covid-19 testing stations set up at short notice, it has a complete arsenal in place for combating the virus.
The new seal is initially valid for six months, and starting immediately will be prominently displayed at all of the airport's entrances. You can also find detailed information on all measures and
behavioral rules of conduct, together with a wide range of helpful advice, on the airport website. Please inform yourself thoroughly before starting your trip - in order for the measure to be fully effective, everyone needs to actively participate.
Airports Council International (ACI), the association of airport operators worldwide, also recently recognized Frankfurt Airport for its exemplary actions to fight the virus. In late 2020, Frankfurt Airport received the “ACI Airport Health Accreditation” for a period of one year. This makes FRA one of the first German airports to be certified for meeting international standards for hygiene and virus protection.
