The safety of our customers is our number one priority, and with COVID-19 we have introduced some additional safety measures.

We strongly recommend that customers visit the National Institute for Communicable Diseases (NICD) website, as a resource on how best to protect oneself. In addition, customers are encouraged to wash their hands frequently and use hand sanitisers and/or anti-bacterial wipes when travelling. Wearing a mask correctly in the airport building and onboard is mandatory and customers are advised not to travel if experiencing any signs of illness. Children under the age of 6 years may be exempted from wearing a mask and passengers that have pre-existing medical conditions and cannot wear a mask would need a medical certificate.
