ABSTRACT

COVID-19 Aviation Health Safety Protocol: Operational Guidelines for the Management of Air Passengers and Aviation Personnel in Relation to the COVID-19 Pandemic   [open pdf - 0B]

From the General Considerations: "The purpose of this COVID-19 [coronavirus disease 2019] Aviation Health Safety Protocol is to provide guidance to airport operators, aircraft operators, and NCAs [national competent authorities], as well as other relevant authorities and stakeholders on how to facilitate the safe and gradual restoration of passenger air transport. This restoration is subject to the deployment of proportionate and effective measures that reduce the risk of SARS-CoV-2 [severe acute respiratory syndrome coronavirus 2] transmission at the airport and on board aircraft, as much as practicably possible, to protect the health of passengers and aviation personnel. The general situation regarding the COVID-19 pandemic, including the implemented containment measures, the potential risk of being exposed to one or more infected individuals, and the need to deal with unfamiliar situations in the workplace, is likely to have a negative impact on the mental health and well-being of passengers and aviation personnel. In this context, airport operators, aircraft operators and, where applicable, other service providers/suppliers should promote aviation personnel's access to counselling and/or support programmes (where available), and make use of the World Health Organization, EU-OSHA [Occupational Safety and Health Association] and any other relevant guidance."
