2020 COVID-19 Aviation Health Safety Protocol

Key measures in the European Aviation Safety Agency (EASA) and the European Centre for Disease Prevention and Control (ECDC) include:

  • Physical distancing at the airport should be maintained. Terminal infrastructure, such as with baggage drop and claim, and at security, should be optimized to prevent queuing.

  • The wearing of masks at all times in the airport and on oard is recommended, as is provision of appropriate personal protective equipment (PPE) to staff. Enhanced cleaning procedures in both the airport and aircraft are recommended, especially for frequently-touched surfaces.

  • Where allowed by the passenger load, cabin configuration and mass and balance requirements, airlines should ensure, to the extent possible, physical distancing among passengers. Family members and individuals travelling together as part of the same household can be seated next to each other.

  • The guidance is clear that while airlines should seek to maintain physical distancing where practicable, flexibility on seating arrangements is permitted.

And quarantine requirements are not necessary. But it is absolutely essential that all European states apply these guidelines in a harmonized and mutually recognized way.
