Dubai’s budget airliner flydubai has launched new guidelines for passengers in the form of a redesigned “passenger partnership” to help limit the spread of coronavirus as it restarts flights in and out of the United Arab Emirates.
The new guidelines, published by the UAE’s official WAM news agency, outline the steps that passengers should take from when they first book their flight until they arrive at their destination.
The steps, which include advising patients to bring their own travel hygiene kit, are aimed at reducing the spread of COVID-19 and preparing passengers for any potential delays or adjustments to their expectations of flying in the coronavirus era.
“In these unprecedented times, we are very conscious of the role that we play as part of the global community in response to COVID-19. We have carefully reviewed the guidance and best practice published by a number of international organizations together with those of our regulator and our industry partners. We have further built on these which has resulted in a layering of measures by the authorities, the airport and flydubai,” said flydubai CEO Ghaith A Ghaith via WAM.
The guidelines come after the UAE allowed some passenger flights in and out of Dubai airport from June 23.
