Air Malta announced it has joined major European aviation operators in a commitment to the ‘Aviation Industry Charter for COVID-19’ put forward by the European Union Aviation Safety Agency (EASA) and the European Centre for Disease Prevention and Control (ECDC).
In a statement issued on Friday Air Malta’s Chief Executive and Accountable Manager, Capt. Clifford Chetcuti said that this charter is aimed at implementing consistent passenger safety procedures across the continent to facilitate the recovery of air transport services whilst maintaining safe and secure operations.
He said that Air Malta believes that a harmonized approach amongst the stakeholders across Europe is key to a safe return to normal operations and rebuilding customer confidence in air travel.
Air Malta’s CEO also said that the implementation of the COVID-19 Aviation Health Safety Protocol addresses the entire journey from the passenger’s perspective, at the departure airport, on board of the aircraft and at arrival to ensure the protection of our customers and crews against transmission of the COVID-19 virus.
