Following the APEX in Safety review, ACI successfully concluded an APEX in Security review at Port Vila Airport (VLI), formerly known as Bauerfield International Airport, in Vanuatu in December 2019, hosted by Airports Vanuatu Limited. Not only was this the first APEX in Security in the country, but it was also the first amongst the Pacific Islands nations. 

 

The review team consisted of security experts from Cairns Airport of Australia, PT Angkasa Pura II of Indonesia, Tahiti Airport of South Polynesia, ACI Asia-Pacific and ACI World.  
 
During the one-week review, the team set forth recommendations for best practices in security.   
 
Launched in October 2017, APEX in Security is a peer-to-peer review programme that helps airports enhance security performance by improving compliance with ICAO Standards and Recommended Practices (SARPs) and adopting industry best practices.
