SSR International Airport is the first airport in Africa to receive the Airports Council International (ACI) Airport Health Accreditation.
The ACI’s Airport Health Accreditation programme recognizes the commitment to health and welfare of passengers, airport staff and the public, by supporting airports assessing the new sanitary protocols introduced further to the COVID-19 pandemic in accordance with ICAO Council Aviation Restart Task Force (CART) recommendations along with industry best practices. It is designed to help reassure the travelling public that airport facilities remain safe and that necessary precautions are being taken to reduce any risk to their health.
All passengers and staff undergo temperature screening through thermal cameras on entering the Departure Hall.
All passengers arriving in Mauritius equally undergo temperature screening prior to entering the International Immigration Hall.
Any person with abnormal temperature or other symptoms is referred to the Medical Unit of the Airport for further examination.
Passengers are encouraged to do a web check-in prior to leaving for the Airport to get their boarding pass and reduce points of contact at the Airport.
Passengers can scan their boarding pass at the Entrance of the Immigration zone and at Security screening.
Around 50 touchless hand-sanitizers are available at different checkpoints across the Airport for the benefit of passengers and staff.
Appropriate signage, such as posters, digital images, public announcement, have been deployed in different zones throughout the Airport.
