Syracuse, New York –The Syracuse Regional Airport Authority (SRAA) announced today that Syracuse Hancock International Airport (SYR) has earned the Airports Council International (ACI) Airport Health Accreditation. Of the 519 commercial service airports in the United States, SYR is one of just 41 airports to earn this accreditation.

SYR achieved this status through an extensive evaluation process meant to ensure the airport is providing a safe airport experience for all travelers. The airport was largely evaluated using the recommended health measures found in the ACI Aviation Business Restart and Recovery guidelines, International Civil Aviation Organization (ICAO) Council Aviation Recovery Task Force Recommendations, as well as industry best practices.

“I cannot thank our team enough for all of the hard work they put in achieving this accreditation,” said SRAA Executive Director Jason Terreri. “Travelers can feel confident returning to SYR knowing that our airport facilities remain safe and that precautions are being taken to reduce any risk to their health.”

The ACI Airport Health Accreditation program enables airports to demonstrate to not only the traveling public, but all aviation stakeholders that health and safety are being prioritized in a measurable, established manner. Additionally, the program promotes best practices across the industry and ensures harmony between global guidance and industry implementation.

Over the past 15 months, SYR has implemented a wide variety of health and safety measures.

The accreditation is valid for 12 months and the supporting certificate can be viewed here.
