The evaluations are carried out in the area of operations and are governed by national and international regulations.
A delegation of the Airports Council International (ACI) visited the world’s first ecological airport to carry out an integral evaluation of the airport’s operations, regulatory compliance, and the aviation standards specified for the correct operation of airports on a global level, according to the programme ACI – Airport Excellence (APEX).
After a tour and the revision of the operational procedures, the ACI advisors found that the procedures applied comply with various standards and made several contributions which have benefited us in the improvement of efficiency and operational security.
Jorge Rosillo, Manager of the Galápagos Ecological Airport, as head of the Airport’s Operational Safety Management System, managed the APEX Program, affirming his commitment to strengthening operational safety.
The airport’s staff received important feedback from international experts based on their experiences at other airports around the world. These practical recommendations and specific solutions significantly contribute to the regulatory compliance and aviation standards which are adapted to the reality of operating from Baltra Island in Galapagos.
Through the APEX program, ACI requests that airports become security partners by providing their security experts to conduct a review of an applicant airport, with the objective of improving security in specific areas of concern.
The assessments include a wide range of key areas, tailored to the needs of each airport.
