Bulletin #35, sent to all ACI members (airports, airport directors, World Business Partners, and ACI staff worldwide)
ACI World continues to participate with a UN agency task force monitoring the radiation levels in Japan and the implications on persons travelling to and from Japan. To view the latest News Release, issued by ICAO on 14 April 2011, see http://www2.icao.int/en/NewsRoom/default.aspx
The UN agency task force assesses that current radiation levels are well within safe limits from a health perspective and do not pose a risk to persons travelling to or from Japan. Similarly, the task force considers that screening of radiation for health and safety purposes at airports around the world, is currently unnecessary.
As reported in Bulletin 33, Narita Airport Authority continues to publish a situation report and the environmental radiation levels at the airport, on its website at http://www.narita-airport.jp/en/.
Members may wish to visit the following websites (World Health Organization and the International Atomic Energy Agency) for additional information:
ACI World will continue to provide updates as more information becomes available. In the meantime, if you have any questions on this issue, please contact your ACI Regional Office or Craig Bradbrook, ACI World Director, Security & Facilitation.
