Flight Safety Instructions Are Different During Coronavirus Outbreak

Flight Safety Instructions Are Different During Coronavirus Outbreak

Plan ahead, avoid crowds, and make sure to constantly disinfect surfaces and objects: this is how to make your trip as safe as possible during COVID-19

Due to the way COVID-19 spreads (airborne droplets released through sneezes or coughs), airplanes pose an even greater risk of infection – a crowded space, questionable level of hygiene and cleanliness, shared bathrooms and more. As a result, most people try to avoid flying nowadays. But what if you have to return home from a trip? Or if you have a business meeting abroad that simply cannot be cancelled or managed remotely? To help you keep as safe as possible, we've collected important tips for you to keep in mind before, during and after the flight.


  1. Ask yourself if flying is really necessary –While it is understandable that many still fly, we must remember that flying can be avoided in many cases and minimising travel helps stop the virus from spreading further.
  2. Plan ahead – make sure you are aware of any restrictions and specific guidelines at your destination. You don’t want to go on a business trip and find yourself quarantined or sent back home because of new regulations.
  3. Where possible, avoid layovers - flying directly will minimise the amount of people you encounter, the possibly contaminated public surfaces you might touch, and having to stand in crowded boarding queues and airports.

The Airport

  1. Protect yourself and others - purchase a protective mask and wear it as soon as you enter the airport. If you have a pair of surgical gloves, wear those as well. Even if you feel well and don’t have any symptoms, you might be carrying the virus and can infect others without knowing.
  2. Keep safe distance in lines – Airport ques can be exhausting and nerve wracking but try to stay calm and keep your distance. While waiting to board the plane, wait for a time when the queue is relatively short to join it.
  3. Wash hands frequently – while this recommendation is valid for all and not just for travellers, it is even more important to maintain hand hygiene in the airport as we come across many people and different surfaces that might be infected.

On Board the Plane

  1. Sit alone – If the plane is not full, ask to sit at a safe distance from others or if you have them, this is the time to use your frequent flyer points towards an upgrade (with flights less full, getting an upgrade these days is easier than usual).
  2. Choose a window seat - a study conducted across ten international flights, found that the safest place to avoid virus infection is the window seat. Aisle and middle seats are much more exposed to close contact with passengers and flight attendants.
  3. Keep it clean - be sure to take alcohol wipes and clean your armrest, headrest, food tray, chair, and toilet handles before using them. Be sure to place a paper towel down before opening up your computer or putting your food on the tray.

Landing and Baggage Claim

  1. Don’t rush – same as when boarding the plane, when disembarking you want to stay seated until most passengers has left. Don’t stand in the aisle next to others waiting for the plane doors to open.
  2. Clean your baggage – after picking up your suitcases wipe the handles thoroughly with alcohol wipes to make sure they are clean (you don’t know how many surfaces and hands they touched).
  3. Be careful when using public transport – if you are taking public transportation, try to keep a safe distance from others and don’t touch the poles or handles with bare hands. If you take a taxi, it’s best to sit in the back seat and across from the driver. If you choose to rent a car instead, thoroughly disinfect the seats, steering wheel and gear lever before driving.

Safe Travels

International travelling during these challenging times should not be taken lightly and requires attention and planning ahead. Be aware and ensure that you are taking all the relevant precautionary measures. Bon Voyage!
