Auckland Airport takes out GIA Industry Award
The GIA Partnership was proud to again sponsor the Industry Award at the 2022 Biosecurity Awards held in Auckland on 31 October 2022.

We congratulate the GIA Industry Award winner, Auckland International Airport, which took out the award for its programme Creating a Biosecurity Culture to Make Biosecurity Matter.

The award judges noted that Auckland Airport has elevated biosecurity to something the entire airport community understands and is engaged with and in doing so has created a culture and a team of biosecurity champions. Because Auckland Airport is New Zealand’s largest international airport, receiving passengers and goods from around the globe, it is a first line of defence at New Zealand’s air border. By supporting a strong border, the company is helping keep Aotearoa free from exotic pests and diseases. Read more
