November 22, 2021
For Immediate Release
On November 12, 2021, the Sarasota Bradenton International Airport (SRQ) received a renewal of the Airport Health Accreditation Certificate from the Director General of Airports Council International World (ACI).
“Receiving ACI’s Airport Health Accreditation validates our commitment to providing passengers with a clean and safe traveling environment when using SRQ. Since the start of the pandemic, we have worked with our tenants and the TSA to implement multiple layers of cleaning and safety measures.
We upgraded our restrooms to a fully touchless experience. We implemented numerous measures throughout the terminal including plastic shields at all customer service counters, touchless hand sanitizer stations, and courtesy thermal temperature scanners. We doubled the size of our janitorial workforce and implemented strict cleaning protocols. You also see employees, tenants, and passengers wearing protective face coverings to help prevent the spread of COVID-19 per TSA guidelines.
We understand the importance and necessity of these measures and plan to continue dedicating funds and resources toward these efforts even after the pandemic has receded,” stated Rick Piccolo, President, CEO of the Sarasota Bradenton International Airport.
