The signatories are Izmir Adnan Menderes, Ankara Esenboga, Milas-Bodrum and Gazipaşa-Alanya airports in Turkey, Skopje Airports in North Macedonia, Enfidha and Monastir airports in Tunisia and Tbilisi Airport in Georgia. Antalya Airport co-operated by Fraport and TAV also committed to the charter.

 

TAV Airports President&CEO Sani Şener said: “As countries gradually open their borders and lift flight restrictions, the aviation industry is well-prepared to provide a safe travel experience to passengers and a healthy work environment for employees. All airports in our portfolio have complied with the local and international regulations and recommendations put forward by respective authorities. As part of these efforts, we are happy to commit to the EASA charter, which provides a common set of guidelines for airports and airlines. This charter will further strengthen our proposal for a safe travel experience and hopefully accelerate the recovery of international flights between signatory airports.”
