Cairo Airport obtains ACI safety award

Cairo Airport announced in a statement that it has received the best 2017 air safety award in Africa by Airports Council International (ACI) for its continuous efforts to heighten the airport’s safety procedures.

The statement conveyed the ACI council’s praise along with a report, carried out by the Airport Excellence (APEX) in Safety Program, which provides assistance for ACI members to improve their level of safety and compliance with ICAO Standards and Recommended Practices.

The ACI called on the Chairman of the Board of Directors of Cairo Airport Company to receive the award during the meeting of the general assembly of the ACI council scheduled to for October in Mauritius.

Cairo Airport recently obtained the ISO 9001/2008 quality management system standard certification granted by the international Swiss Company SGS upon a periodical assessment of the airport’s performance in accordance with international requirements and standards.

So what? :urm:

The news is a bit short on what was inspected, and what was improved. I get the impression the ACI safety review is more about routine areas of airport safety rather than, say, passenger facilities, comfort and security...but who knows.

I'd like to announce the winner of the :

Best Meaningless Award for Improvement in Anything 2017.

And this year's award goes to.....*fanfare*....Cairo Airport !!

The award ceremony will be held in Bora Bora, Tahiti and , in accordance with standard practice, Newcastle will travel there (all expenses paid by Cairo Airport) to collect the prestigious award on their behalf.
