On October 8, 2020, the state of Ceará was recognized as a safe travel destination and received the Safe travels stamp from the World Travel & Tourism Council (WTTC).
Committed to protecting the health of travelers and encouraging the reopening of local tourism, the Department of Tourism of Ceará (Setur) submitted the measures to be adopted by the state to the international organization. The certification bears witness to the quality of the state’s plan and sets the stage for resuming the promotion of Ceará in Brazil and internationally.
Fortaleza Airport is strictly complying with the recommendations of health authorities related to the spread of the Coronavirus and has implemented several actions since the beginning of the pandemic to offer a clean and safe environment to its passengers and users.
The company disinfected the Terminal in partnership with the Brazilian Army, using specific chemical products. The cleaning routines were intensified: toilets, seats, handrails, elevators, and other facilities are constantly sanitized. Instructions on the measures to prevent the spread of the virus are provided through the public address and video systems across the Terminal. Special signs about social distancing and the use of masks, among other measures, have also been implemented. Passengers can also find hand sanitizers in busy areas of the airport.
Additionally, the company installed a high-precision thermal camera at the entrance of the domestic boarding area, which can measure the temperature of up to 5,000 people in half an hour, in real time, without any contact and without having to stop the flow of passengers into the area. Moreover, the Department of Health of the State of Ceará continues to measure the temperature of arriving passengers at baggage claim.
Working hand in hand with the State Government, Fortaleza Airport has its doors open to welcome tourists.
