The airline operates an anti-viral disinfection program in which it sprays the cabins after each flight, as well as fumigates them using anti-viral high pressure disinfection sprays on seats and throughout the cabin. Disinfectant chemicals used are internationally approved and safe for all passengers.
We use High-Efficiency Particulate Air (HEPA) filters which are similar to those used to keep air clean in hospital operating rooms and industrial clean rooms. They are effective at capturing greater than 99.97% of airborne microbes in filtered air.
The aircraft’s air filters are also replaced frequently.
Upon arrival at your destination please remain in your seat. Please do not stand up in the aisle and wait for instructions from the cabin crew when to disembark. To maintain safety, passengers will be required to disembark in small groups.
