Brussels Airlines is getting ready to welcome passengers and staff again. On 15 June the first nine flights of Brussels Airlines will take off from Brussels Airport.
In order to make the journey as safe as possible for travelers and personnel, the airline has taken several hygiene measures while still allowing to travel in all comfort.
Passengers from the age of 6 years old will wear a mask that covers nose and mouth. The mask must be kept on during the entire flight, as social distance on board cannot be guaranteed.
In addition to temperature checks at Brussels Airport before passengers enter the terminal, check-in and sales desks plexiglass screens have been installed to protect check-in agents and passengers.
Boarding and de-boarding will be phased to avoid queues and passengers are requested to scan their own boarding pass to avoid physical contact.
The cabin crew will offer to apply hand sanitizer to all passengers when boarding the aircraft, as well as hand out a disinfectant wipe.
During the flight, physical contact between passengers and crew will be reduced. Meal and drink service on European flights will not be available and on intercontinental flights, the duty free service will be available for electronic payments only.
To minimize contact by touch, menu cards, magazines and newspapers are also removed from the aircraft.
