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


The #1 rule for flying

Your safety and wellbeing are important to us. We are 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 Reservations 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.


Masks for the crew and passengers

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.

Our passengers are required to wear a mask throughout the flight, changing to a fresh mask on arrival. 





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.
