Stansted Airport is one of the first UK airports to be considered Covid secure ahead of further lockdown easing, which is expected on May 17.
Industry regulator, the Civil Aviation Authority (CAA), assessed the airport's general hygiene, use of face coverings and health screenings, and monitoring of staff and passengers' mental health to test whether London Stansted is Covid secure.
The Covid secure assurance, which was announced today (Thursday, April 29), meets the standards set out in international guidance.
Steve Griffiths, London Stansted's Managing Director, said: "The recognition is great testament and credit to the hard work of our teams across the business to keep our passengers and colleagues safe.
"It ensures we're ready for the restart of international travel in the coming weeks.
