oneworld® has launched an information portal to provide passengers the latest updates on the health and well-being measures they can expect while travelling.
The portal serves as a one-stop resource for information on the various measures implemented on the ground and inflight by oneworld member airlines, as well as major airports in the oneworld global network.
The measures introduced by member airlines include:
- contactless check-in
- enhanced and expanded cleaning of aircraft
- enhanced and expanded cleaning of passenger touchpoints in airports and lounges
- physical distancing during boarding process
- wearing of masks and face coverings
These are in addition to underlying measures including the use of HEPA (high-efficiency particulate air) filters on board aircraft.
On the portal, passengers can view the latest information on the health and well-being measures implemented by their preferred oneworld airline. Passengers may also look up the measures that have been introduced at major airports in the oneworld global network, to further prepare for their upcoming journey.
Passengers travelling on multi-sector journeys across the alliance can be assured that oneworld member airlines are committed to protecting their health and well-being through every step of their journey.
The information portal is at https://www.oneworld.com/covid-19/oneworld-together,
oneworld CEO Rob Gurney:
“Safety has always been the top priority for oneworld member airlines. While the flying experience is different during these challenging times, our member airlines have implemented additional measures to protect the health and safety of customers.
