We've taken a number of actions to ensure safe flying during this COVID-19 pandemic. It's been our mission to leave no stone unturned, but unfortunately, these interventions have come at a cost. As a result, we are adding R20 incl VAT to each flight to fund these additional safety measures - a small price to pay for peace of mind. Here's what your R20 will cover.
Temperature screening of you, and crew, and all other passengers on board your flight. A sanitised mask for each passenger which must be worn during flight. This is yours to keep.
Deep cleaning each evening - surfaces, especially common touch areas, are cleaned with a product called Sani-Cide EX3 which is highly effective against bacteria and viruses. We then use an additional treatment called Chemserve Aerosan, which is applied with Electrostatic sprayers to ensure that every possible surface is coated. This agent has an extended "dwell time" or life, keeping surfaced sanitised for extended periods.
Between flights, common touch areas are again cleaned with Sani-Cide EX3 and then the cabins are treated using aerosol foggers containing a product called Iama Global Sanitiser which is safe for people, but not for viruses.
Hand santiser is provided at boarding to keep hands clean and can be requested in flight too.
