Information on COVID-19
COVID-19 is an infectious disease caused by severe acute respiratory syndrome coronavirus2. It is a droplet and surface contact spread disease, primarily transmitted between people during close contact, often via small droplets produced by coughing, sneezing and talking. People who have contracted the virus but are asymptomatic always represent the greatest risk and challenge in the screening process.
ACI Africa is working closely with its partners on the continent and at the global level since the outbreak of COVID-19 to provide information, guidelines and advice to African airports on appropriate measures that will protect health and welfare of travellers, staff and the public, and helping reducing the spread of the disease.
Preparation for the Restart at African Airports
The impact of the COVID-19 pandemic on aviation has been and will continue to be unprecedented in its magnitude and scope for the industry.
Though many African airports have responded well to the challenges posed by the COVID-19 pandemic by implementing a number of measures to prevent the entry and spread of the virus through their air border, it is now vital that we urgently put in place an adequate operational plan to allow for the smooth and coordinated reopening of the airports on the continent after the end of the lockdown and the reopening of national, regional and international borders.
