Traveling Tips During a Pandemic

August 11, 2020 • Alicia

As Travel restrictions lift and people try to get out and enjoy what is left of the summer holidays, remember, aircraft travel is going to very different than it was, pre-pandemic. Most European countries, and a few others available to travel to, do not require a mandatory quarantine, but holiday makers need to take extra precautions. Here are a few tips to help your travel go more smoothly:

• Pack several, easily accessible masks as they are required in airports and most planes.

• Have hand sanitiser to hand, no bigger than 100ml for carry on (anti-bac wipes can also go through security). Larger bottles can be packed in your checked luggage, inside of shoes, to avoid them being squashed.

• Empty water bottles can go through security and be filled, pre-flight, at contactless water fountains in most UK airports.

• Checking-in online and using self-service kiosks for printing bag tags, helps avoid large queues.

• Sanitise hands before and especially after security.

• Another thing you can do is use the terminal toilets just before boarding to try and avoid plane toilets.

• Listen to airport announcements as boarding could be much different.

• Anti-bac arm-rests, tray tables, tvs and seat belts on board.

• There may be reduced food and drink on offer, so be prepared.

• Air filtration of planes has bee upgraded to remove 99.9% of dust, fungi, moisture, bacteria and viruses. So please feel free to breath normally.
