Article nameWhat safety measures are being taken to fight the spread of the coronavirus?

We are committed to keeping our employees and clients safe during the current global Coronavirus (COVID-19) outbreak. We are following all World Health Organization recommendations and local authority recommendations in the areas we operate.

What we are doing:

  • We have strengthened crew procedures on how to act and who to notify if they see a suspicious case during a flight.
  • We have implemented on-board communications when landing in certain countries in compliance with local regulations.
  • We have protection items for personnel welcoming international flights.
  • We have monitoring and medical attention protocols in place, if needed, for employees that have been in contact with a confirmed case.

And on our airplanes:

  • We have implemented special cleaning procedures for airplanes where a suspicious case is detected.
  • We have improved our stock of personal protection items within the airplane that will be used according to protocol if a suspicious case arises.
  • We added hand sanitizer in all our airplane bathrooms.
  • Our airplanes have an air recycling system that recycles airplane air every 3 minutes using HEPA (High Efficiency Particulate Air) filters, which capture viruses and particles.
