Safety Measures onboard
As well as the aircraft being cleaned – including seats, screens, seat buckles and tray tables after every flight and each aircraft is completely cleaned from nose to tail every day – and of course HEPA filters being installed.
Passengers will need to play their part too, by checking-in online, downloading their boarding pass and where possible self-scanning their boarding passes at the departure gate
You’ll need to observe social distancing requirements and using hand sanitisers that are placed throughout airports
And of course – wear a face mask. British Airways requires that you bring enough for your flight – and bring enough to replace them every four hours for longer flights
Alex Cruz, British Airways’ Chairman and CEO, said:
“Following months of lockdown and stress, we know people will want to travel to be reunited with friends and family and to take a well-deserved break.
“We have put in place measures – to UK Government and aviation regulator standards – to ensure we’re doing all we can to protect the wellbeing of our customers and colleagues and we’ll be asking them to play their part in that too.”
