Air Malta has joined major European aviation operators in a commitment to the ‘Aviation Industry Charter for COVID-19’ put forward by the European Union Aviation Safety Agency (EASA) and the European Centre for Disease Prevention and Control (ECDC).
Commenting on this initiative, Air Malta’s Chief Executive and Accountable Manager, Capt. Clifford Chetcuti, said, “This charter is aimed at implementing consistent passenger safety procedures across the continent to facilitate the recovery of air transport services
whilst maintaining safe and secure operations. We believe that a harmonized approach amongst the stakeholders across Europe is key to a safe return to normal operations and rebuilding customer confidence in air travel.
“Air Malta is committed to adhere to these principles and responsibilities, and the implementation of the COVID-19 Aviation Health Safety Protocol. These measures address the entire journey from the passenger’s perspective, at the departure airport, on board of
the aircraft and at arrival, devised to ensure the protection of our customers and crews against transmission of the COVID-19 virus”, added Capt. Chetcuti.
The protocol is endorsed by various international and European associations including IATA, A4E, EBAA and ERA.
