Airports Council International Launches APEX In Mauritius
Airports Council International (ACI) has launched its first Airport Excellence (APEX) in Security pilot security review at Sir Seewoosagur Ramgoolam International Airport in Mauritius.
ACI is pleased to be working with Mauritius Airport on the project, which will enable the fine tuning of the programme for future security reviews at airports around the world.
The APEX in Security programme is a peer review process that offers advice on best practice and identification of areas for improvement. The ultimate aim of the programme is to promote more secure airport operations worldwide.
Airports of Mauritius Co Ltd. (AML) has asked ACI’s APEX in Security team to perform the review, which will help them identify security gaps at their airports.
APEX in Security is run on similar lines to the popular APEX in Safety programme, now in its fifth year. It uses international standards and recommended practices, supplemented by implementation guidelines as its base, and supplements this with the expert views of seasoned practitioners from similar sized airports around the world.
Airports Council International (ACI), the trade association of the world’s airports, was founded in 1991 with the objective of fostering cooperation among its member airports and other partners in world aviation.
