Santiago airport supports the reopening of the Chilean borders

Chilean President Sebastián Piñera visited Santiago airport, a member of the VINCI Airports network, to announce the reopening of the Chilean borders to non-resident foreigners. The reopening will be done only through Santiago airport, framed by a health protocol that's been saluted on several occasions.

After eight months of strict closure, while this opening exclusively concerns Santiago airport, the infrastructure is now ready to welcome new travelers, both operationally and healthwise. The airport has in fact obtained from the ACI the Airport Health Accreditation, a new confirmation of the relevance of the measures implemented by VINCI Airports in terms of health measures taken during this pandemic. 

The AHA accreditation as an international program, was created to reward airports for their efforts to create a safe transit space for all and their commitment to high quality service. Several airports in the VINCI Airports network now hold this accreditation. In a more global manner, all of these hygiene measures are part of the international “Protecting Each Other” campaign promoted by VINCI Airports on all of its locations. The campaign is based on the hygiene recommendations issued by the World Health Organization (WHO) and the agencies of the United Nations, such as the International Civil Aviation Organization (ICAO).
