Share this page:

Colorado Springs, CO – The Colorado Springs Airport (COS) has been accredited as a Global Biorisk Advisory Council (GBAC) STAR Facility. GBAC STAR is a performance-based accreditation program that demonstrates that airport facilities have put in place the work practices, procedures and protocols to prepare, respond, and recover from outbreaks and pandemics.  COS is one of fewer than 40 US airports to have achieved this accreditation.

“I’m extremely pleased to see our hard-working staff awarded for their diligent efforts to keep the traveling public safe,” said Greg Phillips, Director of Aviation for COS.

This accreditation means that a facility has established and maintained a cleaning, disinfection, and infectious disease prevention program to minimize risks and provide the proper cleaning protocols, disinfection techniques, and work practices to combat infectious disease and ensure that COS has informed staff who are trained to the highest standards for outbreak and infectious disease preparation and response.

“The team of attendants at COS have gone above and beyond to ensure our airport is a place where our community, employees and tenants can feel safe and where the highest standards for sanitation and cleanliness are in place,” said Phillips.
