CVG Achieves Global Health Accreditation

The airport is the first in the Midwest and third in the U.S. to receive the accreditation.

(Erlanger, Ky.) – Cincinnati-Northern Kentucky International Airport has been recognized for prioritizing the health and safety of the traveling public.

CVG is the first airport in the Midwest, and third in the U.S., to receive an industry approved, global Health Accreditation.

Airports Council International (ACI) Airport Health Accreditation (AHA) program assesses an airport’s compliance with new health measures and procedures introduced as a result of the COVID-19 pandemic in accordance with International Civil Aviation Organization (ICAO) Aviation Recovery Task Force recommendations.

Areas of assessment include cleaning, disinfection, physical distancing, staff protection, physical layout and passenger communication.

“Since the start of the COVID-19 pandemic, North American airports have taken unprecedented steps to ensure the health and safety of passengers and airport workers,” said ACI-NA President and CEO Kevin M. Burke. “We are proud to recognize Cincinnati/Northern Kentucky International Airport as the first airport in the Midwest to achieve their Airport Health Accreditation. It further demonstrates the airport’s commitment to promoting health and safety as air travel begins to recover.”

With the accreditation, airports are expected to complete ongoing self-assessment and quality assurance.

“Passenger safety has always been our paramount concern at CVG. Our CVG community, comprised of airport, airline and tenant staff continue to go above and beyond for travelers,” said Candace McGraw, Chief Executive Officer, CVG. “We are pleased to receive this important validation of our collective efforts to rebuild passenger confidence. I continue to be grateful for and impressed with the dedication of our staff.”
