How we’re keeping passengers and employees safe during COVID-19:

 

The #1 rule for flying

We’re making sure that all our staff are fit and healthy for work, and all passengers must refrain from flying if feeling unwell. Instead, please stay at home and contact our customer service department to discuss options for re-booking your travel.

Passenger screening

Prior to boarding, we take and record the temperatures of all crew and passengers. All international passengers are also asked whether they have travelled overseas within the last 14 days or are feeling unwell. Those who do present with cold or flu symptoms (including a cough, runny nose, sore throat, headache, temperature or difficulty breathing) may be prevented from boarding the aircraft.

 

 

Essential hygiene and sanitisation

We’re washing our hands frequently and request that our passengers do the same. If you do need to cough or sneeze, please do so into your elbow, and be refrain from touching surfaces as much as possible. Our crew are following our usual stringent hygiene procedures including wearing gloves for collection after food or beverage service and during cleaning. Crew are also using hand sanitiser when entering or exiting galley area and frequently throughout food service.

Masks for the crew

All of our staff are wearing masks in the airport and on the aircraft, with crew wearing masks for the duration of the flight. Masks are only removed during announcements, safety briefings and during take-off and landing so that important passenger information can be heard.

Wellness Packs

We are now providing Wellness Packs onboard all our flights. These will include complimentary Hand Sanitiser (60ml), Anti-bacterial wipes, and two face masks.

We have also opted for brown paper packaging as we move towards being more environmentally friendly. The individual packaging of the hand sanitiser and wipes ensures the purity of the product.  

We want our passengers to be comfortable and feel as safe as possible when flying with us.  

The wellness packs are supported by Nauru Post, Eigigu Solutions Corporation and Rainbow Enterprise Nauru.
