Manchester Airport (MAN) in the UK has received the Civil Aviation Authority (CAA) recognition for its efforts to make the airport Covid-secure.

The airport implemented a range of Covid-19 safety measures across the facility to meet international guidelines set by the International Civil Aviation Organization (ICAO).

It was also assisted by the CAA and Public Health England (PHE) to establish and maintain a range of Covid-secure activities.

The CAA recognition comes after a thorough assessment of general hygiene, cleaning, masks and face coverings, health screening and declarations.

It also took into consideration the mental health and well-being of employees and passengers, as well as specific steps for passengers with reduced mobility, before giving its recognition.

Manchester Airport managing director Karen Smart said: “This recognition is great testament and credit to the hard work of our teams across the business to keep our passengers and colleagues safe, as we hopefully see demand increase ahead of the school holiday as restrictions continue to ease.

“We can’t wait to welcome back our passengers and this accreditation and recognition should provide them with the confidence and reassurance we have done all we can to make them feel safe while at the airport.”

With this accreditation, all three airports of Manchester Airport Group (MAG) including London Stansted (STN), East Midlands and now Manchester Airport have CCA recognition.

The airport recently opened its new Terminal Two extension in anticipation of increased passenger traffic in the coming weeks.

The new terminal features shops, bars, cafes and restaurants, as well as a series of popular chains such as Pret-a-Manger, Costa Coffee, KFC, The Amber Alehouse and The Bridgewater Exchange by Joseph Holt.

Manchester Airport said that more stores and venues will be opened once more passengers start using the terminal. Additionally, the terminal will feature two airport-operated lounges.
