As the airline notes,
….. This is unprecedented. However, AirAsia has always been known as the disruptor and we want to restore traveller’s confidence amid the current sentiment towards flying. Travelling is still very safe as long as everyone travels responsibly and is kept updated by World Health Organisation (WHO) or respective government’s travel advice. AirAsia X Malaysia CEO Benyamin Ismail
He also reminded travellers that they can choose when and where to travel within the next year. There is no restriction in the number of times you use the pass. The same destinations can be visited any number of times.
Worried about flying with germs?
The International Air Transport Association (IATA) has very strict rules that airlines must follow regarding passenger safety.
Their recent press release should reassure passengers that
- Cabin air is filtered.
- Aircraft are cleaned in line with global standards.
- Key airports have implemented temperature screening for travellers.
- Airline staff and crew are trained to respond to sick passengers.
Again, the WHO has not called for restrictions on travel or trade. Air transport plays a major role in carrying medical staff and supplies to affected areas.
On a personal level
Dr. David Powell, IATA’s Medical Advisor, lists these simple personal measures to take.
- If you are sick, don’t travel.
- If you have flu-like symptoms, wear a mask and see a doctor.
- When you travel wash, your hands frequently and don’t touch your face.
Travel safe, everyone!
