Coronavirus (COVID-19) updates

Due mainly to the coronavirus epidemic, several airlines appear to have made numerous modifications to the flying schedules. And some big changes might have to be made in the path and perhaps have been postponed or delayed.

Now it has become necessary for people who have entered the country to wear masks and to have to stay quarantined until 14 days. Also, it is so important to gather all the information before making plans for your desired destinations to prevent the chance of getting infected.

Here are the important information changing schedules.

The general guidelines you must follow while traveling from one destination to another:

Travel and testing

The probability of COVID-19 spreading can be minimized by monitoring before and after the flight. The US Centres for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) advises that a viral test be checked 1 to 3 days in advance. If you are waiting for test reports, it is advised that you should postpone the flight. Because while traveling you need to keep a copy of your coronavirus test.

Stay safe while traveling

  • Keep as far as possible between you and others for a maximum of 6 feet (2 meters).
  • Stop interaction with sick people.
  • Limit contact with often touched objects including handrails. Start Using a hand sanitizer or wash your hands after touching any surfaces.
  • Using a facial mask cloth.
  • No eyes, nose, or mouth touches.
  • Lap with sneezes and coughs.
  • Often brush your hands. After going to the toilet, eating, and coughing, sneezing, or blowing your nose, it is particularly necessary.

As if most viruses do not spread over planes, still there may be a chance that while being at the airport you may contact some people. So, it is important to take care of yourself while you are at the airport and on the flight.

The CDC has provided guidelines to help the air carriers deter the transmission of the coronavirus by the Federal Air Transportation Administration (FAA). Consequently, most important airlines in the United States need apparel to be covered by crews and passengers. See their pages for updates about what individual airports and airlines are doing to secure travellers.
