The ACI Airport Health Accreditation program requires a thorough assessment of an airport's cleaning and safety practices. Those practices are then measured against the international industry standard. In order to receive the ACI Airport Health Accreditation, Sky Harbor was evaluated in several areas including: Cleaning and disinfection; cleaning products used; staff training; ventilation and air flow; availability of hand sanitizer; the use of touchless technology and more.</span></p> <p> <span style="background-color:window;color:windowtext;font-size:10pt;"> <img class="" style="margin:5px;width:200px;height:123px;vertical-align:baseline;" src="/aviationsite/MediaAssets/UV-C%20Handrails.JPG" />“It gives me great satisfaction to be able to share with our customers, our business partners, and our employees that PHX is achieving among the highest standards in the industry when it comes to providing for a safe, secure, and healthy airport environment," said Chad Makovsky, Director of Aviation Services for the City of Phoenix. “This simply would not have been possible without our amazing team at the City of Phoenix, particularly our Sky Harbor Facilities and Services staff."</span> </p> <p> <span style="background-color:window;color:windowtext;font-size:10pt;">Phoenix Sky Harbor and other airports will be required to renew their Accreditation annually. In addition to this recognition, Phoenix Sky Harbor, Phoenix Deer Valley and Phoenix Goodyear Airports received the Global Biorisk Advisory Council's GBAC Star™ accreditation in March of this year. The GBAC facility accreditation is an outbreak prevention, response, and recovery accreditation for facilities and represents a high level of achievement within the cleaning industry. Sky Harbor is one of the few airports in the U.S. with both GBAC Star™ and ACI Accreditation.</span> </p> <p> <span style="color:windowtext;font-size:10pt;background-color:window;"> <strong>Phoenix </strong> </span> <span style="color:windowtext;font-size:10pt;background-color:window;"> <strong>Sky Harbor International Airport, America's Friendliest Airport®</strong>, has an annual economic impact of more than $38 billion.

Free COVID-19 Vaccine Event Offered to Airport Employees and Their Familieshttps://www.phoenix.gov/newsroom/aviation/1874Aviation4/26/2021 8:00:00 PMhttps://www.phoenix.gov/newssite/Lists/NewsArticle/Attachments/1874/newsroom_aviation_067.jpgFree COVID-19 Vaccine Event Offered to Airport Employees and Their Families<div class="ExternalClassA85426C6FF094BD88C52F27DD675CDD8"><html>PHOENIX – As the largest economic engine in the state of Arizona, the Phoenix Airport system consisting of Phoenix Sky Harbor, Phoenix Deer Valley and Phoenix Goodyear airports employs more than 33,000 people. In order to ensure that employees have access to the COVID-19 vaccine, a free vaccination event is being held at the 44th Street PHX Sky Train® Station through April 29.<br><br>Phoenix Mayor Kate Gallego kicked off the four-day event on Monday, April 26.<br><br><img class="" style="margin:5px 0px;width:300px;height:169px;vertical-align:baseline;" src="/aviationsite/MediaAssets/Airport_Vaccine_2.jpg" /><br>“Airport employees are part of our critical infrastructure," said Phoenix Mayor Kate Gallego. “ It is clear that protecting public health is also the fastest way to economic recovery. The vaccine s delivered here at Sky Harbor will help our employees, and those that they come into contact with, be protected from the COVID-19 virus."<br><br>The event is providing the Moderna COVID-19 vaccine free of charge to all airport badge holders. Any airport contractor or volunteer who holds a Phoenix Sky Harbor International Airport badge or credential is eligible. In addition, badged employees and contractors at Phoenix Deer Valley and Phoenix Goodyear Airports are eligible. This includes, but is not limited to employees of airlines, shops and restaurants, ground transportation providers, other service providers, construction companies and more. Employees are encouraged to schedule an appointment at the end of their shift. <br><br>“Phoenix Sky Harbor is one of our city's largest revenue generators that has been greatly impacted by the COVID-19 pandemic, said District 1 Phoenix City Councilmember Ann O'Brien. “Making the COVID-19 vaccine available to all airport workers, including the staff of Phoenix Deer Valley Airport, the busiest general aviation airport in the nation, is a big step toward normalcy."  <br><br><img style="margin:5px 0px;width:300px;height:170px;" src="/aviationsite/MediaAssets/Airport_Vaccine_1.jpg" /><br>The event is also open to any family member or dependent of airport employees. Appointments for employees and their families are recommended, though walk-ups will be available.<br><br>“Our Phoenix Sky Harbor International Airport is the largest hub of jobs in the state and its success rests on the hard work and dedication of thousands of workers," said District 5 Phoenix City Councilmember Betty Guardado. “They have felt the effects of this pandemic firsthand, many being laid-off, furloughed or even fired as air travel came to a virtual halt. But today, thanks to the national vaccine rollout, more Americans are traveling and our airport is seeing a steady increase in flights. Now is the time to ensure that all our airport employees have access to the vaccine, to protect themselves, their families, coworkers, and our airport guests. I am honored to be here today, and I am thankful to the leadership of Phoenix Mayor Kate Gallego and the efforts of our partners at Maricopa County. It's time for all of us to do our part, roll up our sleeve, and get our shot!" <br><br>This vaccine dispensing event is a collaborative effort between the city of Phoenix, Maricopa County, Curative, and employers at Phoenix Sky Harbor, Phoenix Deer Valley and Phoenix Goodyear airports. <br><br>“It's an honor for Curative to deliver vaccination deployment for the Phoenix Sky Harbor. This is a significant moment in history, and we are ready to bring these life-saving vaccines to people who need them," said Isaac Turner, CIO and co-founder of Curative. “Curative has disrupted the traditional healthcare delivery system by rapidly scaling COVID-19 testing at thousands of sites across the country in a matter of months and administering the flu vaccine – now, we are eager to put our proven model to work for the COVID-19 vaccine. We're building on everything we learned over the last year at Curative and we look forward to making healthcare more accessible to all: both now and in the future as we evolve as a company."<br><br>Over the course of the COVID-19 pandemic, the City of Phoenix Aviation Department has been committed to ensuring that its facilities are clean, safe, and welcoming for airport employees and customers.

Working Together to Help Travelershttps://www.phoenix.gov/newsroom/aviation/1833Aviation3/24/2021 9:45:00 PMhttps://www.phoenix.gov/newssite/Lists/NewsArticle/Attachments/1833/newsroom_aviation_066.jpgWorking Together to Help Travelers<div class="ExternalClassAE0CA0D21D4246B380B54C66F6665D03"><html>​<strong><em>America's Friendliest Airport® develops Android version of important app</em></strong><br><br>Early in the pandemic, the aviation industry realized the need to communicate health and safety requirements and information about COVID-19. Because there wasn't one standardized place to look for information, under the leadership of the ACI World IT Standing Committee's ACRIS (Airport Community Recommend Information Services) Group, ACI, multiple airports and World Business Partners worked together to come up with a solution to help passengers get COVID-19 related health and safety measures at arriving and departing airports. Phoenix Sky Harbor International Airport has played an integral role in this group, and the Airport's Technology team has helped to develop an app that provides travelers with the critical information they need.<br><br>The group, which was led by San Francisco International Airport, focused on two main initiatives. The first was to develop an airports-only application to allow airports to enter and update their own COVID-19 health and safety measures. This data is published in real-time and allows airlines and third parties to access the data from a single source.<br><br><img style="margin:5px;width:400px;height:280px;" src="/aviationsite/MediaAssets/PressRelease_Check%26Fly.jpg" />The second initiative was to develop a passenger-facing app. Last year, <a href="https://aci.aero/" target="_blank">Airports Council International (ACI) World</a> launched an app called Check & Fly. The app, which was developed by Seattle-Tacoma International Airport (SEA), was for iOS operating systems, meaning that it was only available to Apple users. Phoenix Sky Harbor International Airport's Technology team saw the need for ensuring that Android users had access to this critical information, and therefore, developed an Android version of the app. This version was recently released by ACI World to the Google Play Store.<br><br>The free app provides users with comprehensive information about what they can expect when they travel through a particular airport. The app includes information about whether health screenings are required, what measures the airports have put into place regarding sanitation, what services they can expect when they arrive, and much more. Users simply download the app and then can select a departure or destination airport. It's a helpful resource for travelers as they navigate travel during the COVID-19 pandemic.<br><br>As of March 2021, the COVID-19 health and safety information from 291 airports is digitally accessible through the iOS and Android mobile apps. Visit the <a href="https://apps.apple.com/ca/app/check-fly/id1520489875" target="_blank">Apple app store</a> or <a href="https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=aero.aci.checkfly" target="_blank">Google Play</a> to download and start using this app today.<br><br><div style="text-align:center;">– 30 –</div><br><strong>Phoenix Sky Harbor International Airport, <em>America's Friendliest Airport®</em></strong>, has an annual economic impact of more than $38 billion.
