Rome airports first to obtain RINA biosafety certificates

Jun 30 | 2020

The Fiumicino (Leonardo da Vinci) and Ciampino airports in Rome, managed by ADR, have become the first in the world to obtain certification for biosafety from RINA Services. It is a significant step forward in the fight against the spread of COVID-19 and in preventing biological risk from pathogens.

Fiumicino AirportThis certification was obtained following a careful investigation by RINA, which examined the detailed Management System for Preventing and Controlling Infections, implemented by Aeroporti di Roma in order to contain the spread of all possible pathogens that could be transmitted within the airport, from the least dangerous viruses to the most harmful, such as Ebola, Anthrax and Sars-Cov2 (COVID-19).

“We are very satisfied with this result”, said the CEO of ADR, Marco Troncone, “because it once again demonstrates the levels of excellence reached by Fiumicino and Ciampino airports, even in an essential sector such as Health and Safety. It is a certification that recognises the company's effort, which, during the crisis, in addition to the protocols required by the government, has adopted further measures to guarantee the utmost breadth and depth of the prevention interventions and to enable the capital's airports to continue to operate in conditions of utmost safety”.

Paolo Moretti, CEO of RINA Services, commented: “Allowing the resumption of safe air transport is essential for our country's revival. We strongly believe that giving passengers and operators a tangible sign of the commitment and attention dedicated to minimising health risks is essential to regain their trust. By addressing the approach that enabled ADR to receive the voluntary Biosafety Trust certification, the company has made a gesture of responsibility.”
