Covid-19 challenged us to get better, safer and seize the day as much as possible. Today in Jaunt Mexico’s blog, we are going to talk about the health and security guidelines to enjoy a trip you will never forget. From airport measures to the accommodations you will visit, we’ll take you through how to get back home as happy and healthy as ever.
The International Air Transport Association (IATA) supports aviation with global standards for airline safety, security, efficiency and sustainability. They found the ultimate strategy to guarantee safety and promote the reactivation of the aviation industry. We are happy to introduce you to the safety measures taken at airports and airplanes:
The safety measures begin with a training program for all operational personnel to understand why these measures have to take place and have to be strictly followed.
Operational personnel that are in close proximity to passengers follow biosafety principles and practices, including physical distancing and wearing Professional Personal Equipment (PPE)—mask and face coverings, gloves, or even aprons/over-sleeves— when appropriate. All ground operations crew members are subject to a 14-day rotation schedule to ensure minimal exposure risk.
The procedures have also minimized the number of personnel that needs to be in contact with high-touch surfaces — access panels, door handles, switches. Also, during boarding and arrival, the procedures ensure a reduction of physical contact between passengers.
The operators have procedures for personnel that perform maintenance on air filters to ensure the use of adequate PPE when handling used filters. Installation of High Efficiency Particulate Air Filters, which have demonstrated a good performance with SARS-Cov- 2-like particles, allow the proper cabin air flow pattern at all times.
COMMUNICATION. Pre-arrival notifications with recommended arrival time before flight departure that accounts for possible delays due to COVID-19 preventive measures .
You’ll be notified that:
(a) Symptomatic passengers are not to come to the airport;
(b) Only confirmed passengers are permitted access to the terminal, except in cases when the passenger requires special assistance.
(c) Passengers identified as symptomatic will be refused access to or taken off the aircraft and removed from the airport premises by competent public authorities;
(d) Passengers that do not adhere to preventative measures will be treated as unruly passengers and denied access to or will be removed from the aircraft.
Rember face masks have to be worn while in airport terminals and during the flight. But as Smart Travelers we also recommend the use of visors/face shields to prevent contact with skin and mucous membranes of the eyes.
To allow for proper contact tracing in the event of exposure, Mexican airports are asking all travellers to fill out this questionnaire:
Passengers are made aware of the following:
a. Consequences of making a false statement;
b. If identified as symptomatic at the airport, regardless of the health statement, they will not be allowed to continue their travel.
You are in the best hands! Remember aircraft cleaning starts from sanitizing the flight deck, including air conditioning system, and preventive disinfection after every use.
Safety, Security and Efficiency will keep this industry alive by also promoting public health and confidence among Passengers, Aviation Workers and the General Public.
