AIR IN THE CABIN
The quality of the aircraft’s cabin air is carefully controlled. Western EMB-145 Jets and the Saab 340’s are equipped with ventilation systems that provide for fresh air to be circulated from the outside into the cabin while passengers are on board. the aircraft are also equipped with recirculation filters systems that allow air to pass through high-efficiency filters. These filters are similar to those used in intensive care units, which effectively trap dust particles, bacteria, fungi, and viruses. “Research has shown there is little risk of any communicable disease being transmitted on board an aircraft.”( World Health Organization). However, please note quality air does not prevent transmission through direct contact and touch via person-to-person as in any other location.
SEATING & SOCIAL DISTANCING
In an effort to minimize close contact, seats may be limited per flight. Passengers will be seated in space throughout the aircraft. We ask that upon boarding and deboarding passengers allow for the required 6 ft spacing between each person after landing, please remain in your seat and let a passenger seat in front of you adequate space to exit the aircraft before standing in an aisle.
MASK, FACE COVERINGS & GLOVES
Mask and face coverings are recommended but not required for travel. Gloves are also recommended but not required for travel.
To minimize the risk of passing on infections, travelers who are unwell particularly if they have a fever, should not travel until they have fully recovered. Individuals with a known, active communicable disease or have strong reason to believe that they have been exposed to such disease or virus such as covid-19 should not travel. Temperature checks may be requested prior to boarding. Passengers should avoid touching, over speaking or getting too close to fellow passengers during their travel. Please continue to exercise the recommended hygiene practices particularly the consistent washing of hands.
AIRCRAFT CLEANING – ADDITIONAL DISINFECTANT PROCEDURES
All aircrafts are thoroughly sanitized before and after every flight. High grade disinfectants proven to kill viruses and bacteria are released throughout the cabin through fogging machines, trash is disposed of and high-traffic surfaces are cleaned with disinfectant wipes.
