Almost every country in the world had to experience the longest lockdown ever in history. For three to four long months, countries across the globe had to lock their borders due to the devastating novel coronavirus pandemic. 

 

Needless to say, one of the few industries which were affected the most is the travel and tourism industry. The consequences of the virus have been too severe in tourism. It is the backbone of the economies of many countries. The severity of lockdown periods posed drastic repercussions, which will take many destinations years to come back. 

 

As for frequent travelers, vacation packages and ticket bookings had to be canceled owing to the pandemic. Since traveling is the cardinal reason for the transmission of the virus, it had to be suspended. 

 

The future of traveling seemed to be a big question mark. Yet, many countries started to report the decrease of coronavirus cases. This helped destinations to finally reopen and welcome International travelers.

 

If you are about to travel via flight, check the below air travel guidelines. 

 

Measures to be followed by tourists while commuting from residence to the airport:

 

Travelers and tourists need to take extra care not just while in the destination, but even when they are commuting from the origin to the airport. Travel experts and governments have suggested tourists maintain strict social distancing while reaching the airport. 

 

Travelers cannot and should not travel if they show symptoms or turn positive for the test. American airports have implemented compulsory airport testing. But, it is ideally recommended to get yourself tested from a viable healthcare center and carry the health report. It keeps you on the safer side and doesn’t hamper your vacation package.  

 

A passenger is allowed to carry only one check-in bag and one cabin bag. The baggage should be properly sanitized before reaching the airport.

 

American Airlines has closed curbside check-in. Passengers are requested to download the American app to get digital boarding passes to maintain physical distancing. The baggage tags have to be printed by travelers beforehand. If a printer is not available, passengers can simply write the ticket PNR and stick it on their baggage. 

 

Wheelchairs and other facilities will be available at the airport on request. But, the governments and health experts suggest senior citizens, toddlers, and pregnant ladies avoid non-essential traveling since they are the most vulnerable to the virus and other infections.

 

At the airport:

Though creating a vacation package and traveling after a long time may be exhilarating, air travel may pose risks. Passengers have to be present at the airport minimum of two hours before boarding. Airports are vast and maintaining social distancing might be easier. But, that still doesn’t suffice your protection.

 

You can stop yourself from getting exposed to the virus by wearing a face-mask. American Airlines have made it mandatory. Except for infant toddlers and people who have respiratory issues such as shortness of breath will be exempted. But other than that the passengers have to wear a face-mask or cover while entering the airport, boarding the flight, and while reaching the destination airport. People who deny wearing one will be exempted from undertaking travel.

 

All American airports have officials who will guide passengers throughout till they board the flight. Passengers need to oblige the social distancing rules at all costs. Several American airports have a circle or square markings indicating where to stand. Nowadays, this helps several countries to be corona-free and safe to visit. 

 

Chairs and areas marked as “not to be occupied” should not be used. Airports have various appropriate waste bins, especially to dispose of face-masks, tissues, empty sanitizers’ bottles, etc. All medical wastes should be strictly disposed of in those bins only.  

 

While boarding:

American airports have set up screens displaying the health protocols to be followed by passengers while boarding and during the flight. Passengers should attentively read and update themselves concerning it. 

 

It is expected that the travelers sanitize their hands and continue wearing their mask while going through the pre-boarding scan. Once the boarding passes get scanned, passengers should stand in the queue maintaining the social distancing.

 

Most American Airlines is providing a safety kit to passengers. The kit includes a three-layer protective mask, effective alcohol-based sanitizer, disinfectant wipes, tissues, etc.

 

Measures to follow while inside the plane:

All American Airlines have limited food and drink service inside the aircraft. Thus, no meals will be provided by the airlines. However, passengers can carry their food such as snacks and soft drinks to consume during the journey.

 

Magazines, newspapers, and catalogs will not be provided for passengers. Used tissues or wipes are to be disposed of strictly in the space provided.

 

Unnecessary movement in the aisle should be avoided. Passengers should not make a crowd for using the restroom. Toddlers can be accompanied by only one adult to the restroom.

Though the seating capacity in flights has been drastically reduced, passengers are expected to not compromise on social distancing anytime during the journey. 

 

Measures to follow from the airport to destination:

Passengers are firmly advised to be patient, and not make a crowd while disembarking from the flight. The instructions of the crew member are to be followed without fail. 

 

Face-masks or face coverings are mandatory. It is recommended to sanitize your hands once again before disembarking. Passengers should not hurry to get their baggage. The baggage will arrive in batches and social-distancing is to be maintained while retrieving it. 

 

It is suggested using trolleys only when highly necessary. People who have to board connecting flights should immediately reach the transit area. Whereas, others can travel to their respective destinations via certified taxis. 

 

Travel experts advise travelers together with information about the current travel updates in the destination. Accordingly, vacation packages are supposed to be planned. Else, hassles may occur, and your trip may get ruined.
