The Clean & Safe Seal will reach the national airports, said the President of Tourism of Portugal, who guarantees that talks with ANA Airports are already underway.
The stamp that is currently available for tourist accommodation, local accommodation, travel agencies, tourist entertainment companies and food and drink establishments will thus be extended to national airports. The goal is to advance one more step in the tourism value chain, giving back confidence to visitors.
The information was advanced by Luís Araújo last Friday, during his participation in the webinar of the Nova SBE "Tourism: the reinvention of a sector", where he also stated that a platform will soon be launched where consumers will be able to give their opinion about the establishments with "Clean & Safe". Further training on the label is planned, with the doubling of the number of trainees to 4000 weekly.
He also warned that, although the seal is not a certification, Turismo de Portugal and ASAE will supervise companies with the seal, since its use implies compliance with health standards as a "sign that we are prepared to receive anyone".
Luís Araújo also took advantage of the webinar to reinforce that the opinion of international markets about Portugal is very positive. "Portugal has been the target of international praise for the way we are responding to the stamp and for the way we are concerned about conveying a relevant message to those who want to come to Portugal". And he underlined the idea by saying "we are getting the message across that we are dealing with the situation very well and that we are preparing for the future".
