Passenger Facilitation; ongoing delivery
The Passenger Facilitation Program welcomes two new airports having recently adopted at least one of the program’s recommendations.
The program focuses primarily on the areas of security, border protection, immigration and customs
Both Aéroport Marseille de Provence and EuroAirport Basel-Mulhouse-Freiburg have reached the green status by having implemented at least one solution to improve the passenger flow at security checkpoints.
The list of green airport now stands as:
- Lima International Airport Jorge Chávez, Peru
- Chubu Centrair International Airport, Nagoya, Japan
- Punta Cana International Airport, Dominican Republic
- Piarco International Airport, Port of Spain, Trinidad and Tobago
- Kansai International Airport, Osaka, Japan
- Rome Leonardo da Vinci Fiumicino Airport, Italy
- Venice Marco Polo Airport, Italy
- Aéroport Marseille de Provence, France
- EuroAirport Basel-Mulhouse-Freiburg
Interestingly Basel–Mulhouse–Freiburg is one of the few airports in the world operated jointly by three countries; France, Germany, and Switzerland. As a result, this airport has three different IATA codes: BSL (Basel) is the Swiss code, MLH (Mulhouse) is the French code, and EAP (EuroAirport) is the international code. The airport is located completely on French soil but has a Swiss customs area connected to Basel by a border road.
Stay tuned for next issues where we’ll feature EuroAirport’s and Fiumicino Airport’s efforts to improving customer service.
