Following audits carried out by the Airport Council International (ACI), Phnom Penh, Siem Reap and Sihanoukville airports have received Airport Health accreditations (AHA). The audits took place in November and focused on the health and hygiene measures put in place at the three airports in the context of COVID-19, including cleaning and disinfection, physical distancing, staff protection, physical layout, passenger communications and passenger facilities. These processes were specifically adjusted to protect passengers and airport personnel when they interact (check-in, boarding, or disembarkation) and customers and those who cater to them at various outlets (duty-free, food and beverage, business lounges).
These measures are part of the international campaign “Protecting Each Other”, developed and promoted by VINCI Airports for all the airports in its network worldwide. They are based on hygiene recommendations issued by the World Health Organization (WHO) and the International Civil Aviation Organization (ICAO). In the ASEAN region, the three Cambodian airports are among the first to have obtained the ACI Airport Health Accreditation, putting them in the same league as bigger regional hubs in Singapore, Jakarta and Manila. In the category of small and medium airports (less than 15 million passengers a year), Phnom Penh, Siem Reap and Sihanoukville airports stand atop the podium.
“We congratulate the Cambodia Airports operated airports in Phnom Penh, Siem Reap and Sihanoukville for obtaining the ACI Airport Health Accreditation to prove to the world and to the communities they serve that effective health measures have been put in place in compliance with the highest standards recommended by ICAO,” said Stefano Baronci, director-general of ACI Asia-Pacific.
Alain Brun, CEO of Cambodia Airports, the company that develops and manages Cambodia’s network of international airports, said: “By putting the health safety of its passengers and airport users first, Cambodia Airports remains true to itself as one of Cambodia’s key public service providers. I must commend the outstanding cooperation between Cambodian health authorities and our teams. Having a reliable health system at its airports ensures that Cambodia will be looked at favourably when air travel restarts and people browse around destinations to visit, either for leisure or business opportunities.”
When arriving in Cambodia through one of the accredited airports, it is important to choose a safe place to stay when coming out of quarantine.
The Bridge, a major property development in the heart of Phnom Penh, has instituted preventive measures to make sure its premises are safe for everyone as the Coronavirus pandemic sweeps through Cambodia and other parts of the world.
The Bridge engaged EnviroCam, a subsidiary of HCC Group Co Ltd, a well-recognised market leader in Cambodia in the field of professional environmental services, for virus disinfection at various locations across its building.
The move was intended to prevent the spread of Coronavirus and make the building safe for workers, occupants and walk-in visitors.
Located in the Tonle Bassac area of Phnom Penh, The Bridge is among the newest additions to Cambodia’s booming real estate sector. The Bridge is luxury, beauty, convenience and comfort rolled into one.
It is located in a prime district, where government offices, retail shops, restaurants, entertainment joints, sports clubs, embassies, markets, banks, the Diamond Island Convention Centre and Exhibition Hall, Phnom Penh City Hall, Aeon Mall 1 and other conveniences are just a short distance away. The Phnom Penh International Airport and other transportation hubs can be reached in less than 20 minutes.
More than anything, the Bridge puts your health first and has all safety precautions in place to ensure that you feel safe.
