As with many other plans, our arrangements to celebrate the 300 accredited airports milestone have been put on hold in the wake of the pandemic. Nevertheless the idea to somehow mark this great achievement and individually thank every airport that is part of this collective effort has never really left us!
Even more so as the number of airports in the programme continued to grow throughout the toughest months of lockdown and virtual freeze of air transport worldwide, reaching the current figure of 311 participants. The momentum for airport climate action didn’t grind into a halt, but continued its march against all odds.
We would like to say it now: THANK YOU to all who work tirelessly to bring carbon-free airports closer to realisation!
