Sri Lanka’s Mattala Airport receives health certification from Airports Council International

Sri Lanka’s Mattala Rajapaksa International Airport (MRIA) in the country’s Southern Province has reportedly been accredited by Airports Council International (ACI) Airport, which is an industry body, on its compliance with health processes.
According to local media reports, the ACI’s Airport Health Accreditation assesses health measures and procedures introduced by International Civil Aviation Organization’s Aviation Recovery Task Force recommendations for a safe passenger experience at airports.
Sri Lanka’s Bandaranaike International Airport had received the ACI accreditation on January 11 this year.
So far out of 17,600 commercial airports around the world, 600 airports so far have registered to obtain this certification from, the Airport and Aviation Services of Sri Lanka has been quoted as saying.

OSL take:

The health certification received by Sri Lanka’s airports is an encouraging sign for foreign travellers in their post Covid travel. Sri Lanka has been listed as a must visit destination by several leading global travel publications. Also, Sri Lanka is fast becoming a business hub in the South Asian region given it’s geographical positioning in the Indian ocean and the many trade agreements as well as trade concessions enjoyed by the country. All these have resulted in an increase in foreign visitors to the country creating a need to further develop supplementary infrastructure facilities as well as several key economic sectors. Foreign businesses/investors could therefore explore the growing opportunities in Sri Lanka.
