Golfe finds the fairway with NATA Safety 1st
NATA certified Golfe de Saint-Tropez after examining criteria covering operations to clean and disinfect the buildings, its equipment and staff, and the implementation of preventive health measures in the terminal.
Golfe de Saint-Tropez airport has been managed by the Aéroports de la Côte d'Azur Group, the operator of Nice Côte d'Azur and Cannes Mandelieu airports, since 2013.

In recognition of the efforts made by the operator of Golfe de Saint-Tropez airport in France, NATA has issued it with its Safety 1st Clean certification. Across dozens of criteria, it covers all of the health recommendations established by the public authorities and represents the best practices in the sector.

While Nice Côte d'Azur airport had already received ACI Health Accreditation, which has been developed for the largest international hubs, at the start of the year, it is now the turn of Golfe de Saint-Tropez to be recognised for the excellence of its health protection policy on the basis of criteria appropriate to the airport's size and the requirements of its customers.

This certification was awarded to the airport after examining criteria covering operations to clean and disinfect the buildings, its equipment and staff, and the implementation of preventive health protection measures in the terminal, as well as raising awareness among employees and training them in the appropriate measures for combatting the spread of the virus.

“This certification is important for Golfe de Saint-Tropez and for the Aéroports de la Côte d'Azur Group as a whole, as the fight against the pandemic impacts commercial aviation as much as business aviation,” explains Franck Goldnadel, chairman of the board of Aéroports de la Côte d'Azur. “As the operator of the airports, our commitment cannot be on a variable basis. It is our responsibility towards our region, and is a requirement for the return to normal air traffic.”

Golfe de Saint-Tropez airport has been managed by the Aéroports de la Côte d'Azur Group, the operator of Nice Côte d'Azur and Cannes Mandelieu airports, since 2013. It is a general aviation airport receiving 4,000 aircraft every year and plays a role in opening up the Saint-Tropez peninsula.
