The Vietnamese airports to earn AHA include Tan Son Nhat International Airport, Da Nang International Airport, Noi Bai International Airport, Phu Quoc International Airport, and Cam Ranh International Airport.
The AHA is designed to assist airports around the world in proving to passengers, staff, regulators, and governments that they place the health and safety of passengers as their top priority. Indeed, this is done through the establishment of specific safeguard measures as part of the fight against the potential spread of the COVID-19 pandemic.
In order to be certified by the ACI, airports are assessed across a number of categories, including cleanliness and disinfection, physical distancing, staff protection, physical layout, passenger communication, and passenger facilities.
A number of provinces and cities nationwide, including Phu Quoc island in the southern province of Kien Giang, Nha Trang city in the central coast of Khanh Hoa province, and Hoi An City in the central province of Quang Nam, recently welcomed back international tourists. In line with this, all visitors from overseas are must come into the country through the COVID-19 vaccine passport pilot scheme.
