YUL receives another accreditation emphasizing the rigor of its maintenance practices


MONTRÉAL, Sept. 25, 2020 /CNW Telbec/ - ADM Aéroports de Montréal is proud to announce that YUL Montreal-Trudeau International Airport is the first Canadian airport - as well as the first facility in Québec - to earn GBAC STARtm Facility Accreditation from The Global Biorisk Advisory Council® (GBAC), a Division of ISSA, the worldwide cleaning industry association.

GBAC STAR is an international accreditation focused on ensuring a clean, safe, and healthy environment in public and commercial facilities of all sizes. The program outlines best practices, protocols, and procedures to control risk factors associated with infectious disease, including COVID-19. To achieve GBAC STARtm accreditation, ADM was required to demonstrate that YUL complied with the program's 20 core elements, which range from standard operating procedures and risk assessment strategies to personal protective equipment and emergency preparedness and response measures.

ADM launched the Travel with Confidence program at YUL at the beginning of the summer in anticipation of the eventual opening of international and the Canada-U.S. borders, and in order to prepare the airport site for a greater influx of passengers. The program includes health checkpoints at every terminal entrance, additional disinfectant gel dispensers, the systematic cleaning of baggage carts after each use, and the cleaning up to 10 times a day of areas used by passengers. On September 18, ADM announced that it had achieved AHA accreditation under the Airport Councils International (ACI) Airport Health Accreditation Program.

"Travel with Confidence at YUL is a proven program. This new accreditation, the second of its kind obtained in less than 10 days, attests to the high quality of the health measures deployed at the terminal, which meet the highest standards and compare favorably with those of other large establishments around the world, all industries combined" said Philippe Rainville, ADM's President and CEO. "Our team has been working with public health authorities since the beginning of the crisis. It quickly not only complied with the basic requirements, but went beyond them to provide a healthy environment for both passengers and employees. Everything is in place at YUL to ensure safe travel and other initiatives are being developed, such as the possibility of offering a screening test to passengers at our facilities."
