While travel associations have been urging governments to re-establish global connectivity and re-open borders, they understand that safety rules the roost and people are only willing to step out if stakeholders prioritise the health of travellers.

While safety concerns arise from the time people step out of their houses, the perception of enclosed public spaces has changed drastically and airports are no exception. Airports play a critical role in easing the passengers into the new normal. They are the first line of defense in ensuring a safe and less anxious travel.

Following the announcement of the safest airlines, Safe Travel Barometer has now released the Safe Travel Score for airports worldwide. This score is an industry-first rating initiative, based on an independent audit of more than 200 airports and 20 traveler health and safety measures announced by airports.

With a score of 4.7 out of 5, Changi Airport in Singapore has been rated the safest across more than 200 airports evaluated by Safe Travel Barometer. The Safe Travel Score is an indicator of the preparedness of the travel industry as part of the ‘new normal’.

Close on the heels of Changi is Frankfurt Airport, Chengdu Shuangliu International Airport and Delhi’s Indira Gandhi International Airport, each tied at a Safe Travel Score of 4.6 out of 5. UAE’s Abu Dhabi International Airport and Dubai International Airport are tied at 4.5 each. Bengaluru’s Kempegowda International Airport has also made it to the global top 10.

As Virendra Jain, Co-Founder and CEO, Safe Travel, states, “Overnight, hundreds of airports worldwide had to upend their operational processes; research, evaluate and implement a variety of initiatives to ensure traveler and crew safety and comfort, while also minimising the chances of Covid-19 transmission.”
