Bahrain International Airport (BIA) has been certified with the highest 5-Star COVID-19 Airport Safety Rating in recognition of the airport achieving the highest standard of hygiene and safety protocols to prevent the spread of coronavirus. It places BIA in the top 5% of airports worldwide for cleanliness and hygiene.
This 5-Star COVID-19 Airport Safety Rating was awarded to BIA following a detailed audit of COVID-19 safety standards conducted by Skytrax, the international air transport rating organisation, in December 2021.
The audit assessed 175 different safety protocols related specifically to the COVID-19 pandemic that serve to reduce risk and enhance customer and staff wellbeing. The inspections examined the implementation of health, hygiene, and safety measures in accordance with the recommendations of the ICAO Council’s Aviation Recovery Task Force, in addition to requirements from the Kingdom of Bahrain’s Government.
The 5-Star COVID-19 Airport Safety Rating recognizes very high standards of airport cleanliness and maintenance procedures, with these protocols adhered to consistently.
