Ensuring the health, safety, and security of the travelling public and airport workers is always an airport’s top priority. As such, North American airports responded quickly to help contain the spread of COVID-19. Airports continue to take aggressive steps to protect everyone traveling through their facilities and their employees.

As governments and industries around the world begin to develop guidelines for the recovery and resumption of air service following the COVID-19 pandemic, they are considering an array of new measures for implementation at airports. As key stakeholders, North American airports should provide input, guidance, and leadership in developing measures that help to ensure consistency. ACI-NA committees are discussing ideas for short and long term recovery recommendations relevant to their missions. In order to ensure coordination and collaboration among these various committees, ACI-NA established a Airport Industry Recovery Advisory Panel.  This resource page is being made available to ACI-NA members and the broader industry to assist in recovery.
