Airports Authority of India (AAI) has been granted accreditation by the UN agency International Civil Aviation Organisation (ICAO) for facilities to enhance airport safety.

The state-run airports body received the ICAO's Trainair Plus accreditation certificate and membership plaque from ICAO, following an inspection of its Fire Training Centre (FTC) in October, an AAI release said, adding AAI Chairman V P Agrawal received the certificate and the plaque.

With this membership, FTC would have access to global sourcing of training packages which are in line with ICAO's efforts to "improve safety and efficiency of air transport through establishment, maintenance and monitoring of high standards of training and competency of aviation personnel in a cost-effective manner," it said.

Civil Aviation Training College in Allahabad and AAI New Delhi have earlier received such an accreditation for the training facilities.
