Cairo International Airport Receives ISO Certification for Quality Management

Cairo International Airport has received the ISO 9001/2008 quality management system standard certification, Aswat Masriya reported, quoting an announcement by the Cairo Airport Company.

The International Swiss Company SGS granted the certification after a critical assessment of the airport’s performance in accordance with international requirements and standards.

“Such a testimony puts the airport in a global classification that fits the Egyptian state and its geographical distribution and position in the Middle East,” Aswat Masriya quoted Ashraf al-Zuhairi, Director-General of the International Certification Company SGS, as saying.

Mohamed Saeed, Chairman of Cairo Airport Company, said there will be a final review of the “environment” and “occupational safety and health” systems in accordance with the standards and international measurements of the ISO in the coming period, followed by an assessment of these systems within the company to qualify for the ISO certificates in both systems.

“These steps will achieve the main goal of the company by receiving international certificates of conformity in the integrated quality, environment and occupational health and safety management systems in accordance with international standards,” Saeed said.

Egypt’s airports have been under close scrutiny over the past year as a string of aviation incidents, including the downing of a Russian passenger plane over Sinai and the hijacking of an internal EgyptAir flight, cast doubt on security measures and the management of the country’s airports.

The government has been working in recent months to restore confidence in Egypt’s airports by reviewing security measures in airports across the country.
