Oneworld, SkyTeam And Star Alliance Highlight New Safety Measures For Airlines
Dear Travellers, a video by the three alliances, provides a look at what customers can expect on their journeys over the coming months as travel restrictions are slowly eased and the world starts to reopen.
New measures that have been implemented are:
- A requirement or recommendation for passengers and airline staff to wear face masks both at the airport and onboard.
- A safe airport environment with physical distancing in all required areas.
- Increased and intensified sanitation with a focus on high-touch areas, both on the ground and in the aircraft cabin.
- Hospital-grade high-efficiency air filters on board modern aircraft. Known as HEPA (High-Efficiency Particulate Air), these filters extract 99.99% of particles and airborne contaminants.
