COVID-19 comments

Whilst a raft of measures have been introduced at Cancun International Airport in reaction to the COVID-19 pandemic, the audit found that the consistency of application and control of some procedures were in need of improvement to meet higher standards being achieved by airports elsewhere in the world. At Cancun International Airport, there were noted areas of weakness that included poor washroom cleanliness maintenance, and insufficient hygiene procedures for some food and beverage outlets. Social distancing signage is provided, but not to the same standard as some other airports, and the audit noted that there is little to no control of customer social distancing which is an important part of an airport’s responsibility. Face mask usage by customers is quite well adhered to, and some of the weaknesses in this category were noted to be more prevalent amongst some staff inside the airport.
