Emirates Increases Inflight and Airport Safety Measures

Emirates has made some significant changes to the
precautionary measures it takes at the airport and on board to
ensure the health and safety of its employees and customers.

The airline has instructed all cabin crew, boarding
agents and ground staff in direct contact with passengers to wear
personal protective equipment (PPE).

The PPE includes a protective disposable gown over
their uniforms, and a safety visor, in addition to masks and
gloves.

At Dubai International airport, gloves and masks
are mandatory for all customers and employees and thermal scanners
monitor the temperatures of all passengers and employees stepping
into the airport.

Physical distancing indicators have been placed
on the ground and at waiting areas to help travellers maintain the
necessary distance during check-in and boarding.

The airport team has also installed protective
barriers at each check-in desk to provide additional safety
reassurance to passengers and employees during interaction over
the counter.

On board Emirates’ flights, seats are
pre-allocated with vacant seats placed between individual
passengers or family groups in observance of physical distancing
protocols.

Emirates has also modified its inflight services
for health and safety reasons. Food and beverages continue to be
offered in the form of bento-styled boxes to reduce contact
between the crew and customers during meal service, and minimise
risk of interaction. The personal boxes provide customers with
sandwiches, beverages, snacks and desserts.

Similarly, to reduce risk of spreading the virus
by touch, magazines and other print reading material are
temporarily unavailable.

Cabin baggage is currently not accepted
on flights. The only carry-on items allowed in the cabin are limited to
laptop, handbag, briefcase or baby items. All other items have to
be checked in, and Emirates will add the cabin baggage allowance
to customers’ check-in baggage allowance.

Customers have to wear
their masks and gloves throughout their journey from check-in
until they disembark.

All Emirates aircraft will go through enhanced
cleaning and disinfection processes in Dubai, after each journey.
