Pandemic has brought significant changes within the air travel industry. As the world reopens for travel airlines and airports worldwide have issued protocols and requirements to help keep the flying public safe. Here are some tips to fly safely this season.
TRAVEL WHEN IT’S LEAST BUSY
Travel when the airport and airlines are at their slowest helps limit the number of people you encounter. Early morning and evenings are the most crowded time so book nonpeak hour flights that are less crowded.
CONTACTLESS CHECK-IN AT THE AIRPORT
Limit your contact with people and employees at the airport. When you reach the airport, use your smartphone to check into your flight or try using the self-check-in kiosks if available.
BRING YOUR OWN SUPPLIES
Bring your own safety supplies in your bag such as hand sanitizer . Also bring N95 masks some disinfecting wipes to wipe video screen, buttons, seat belt and other surfaces that you might touch during the flight. It’s also a good idea to bring your own travel gear like travel blankets and devices from home to reduce contact.
