GoAir, India’s most trusted airline has extended its full support to various state governments including the Government of Maharashtra’s efforts to impose stricter protocols in order to #BreakTheChain. Air travel has been classified as essential services wherein passengers are allowed to travel to-and-from the airport upon showing valid tickets and boarding passes.
“Let me assure everyone that Air travel is the fastest and safest mode and we at GoAir will continue to adhere to the regulatory and state directives while operating with the highest health safety protocols. Nothing is more important to us at GoAir than the safety and well-being of our staff, crew and passengers. In the view of the second wave, it is all the more prudent to strictly follow the COVID norms laid down by the Ministries of Home Affairs, Health, Civil Aviation and the Directorate General of Civil Aviation (DGCA),” said Kaushik Khona, CEO, GoAir.
GoAir has been carrying out the enhanced cleaning procedures to ensure the health and safety of its customers and employees. GoAir uses the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) approved, hospital-grade disinfectant for deep cleaning the aircraft, i.e. in the cabin, on elements in the flight deck, and in the lavatory. Each GoAir aircraft is equipped with a HEPA (High Efficiency Particulate Air) filter, which filters out recirculated air on-board each plane to remove airborne particles. HEPA filters are also used in hospitals to provide patients with clean air wherein they extract more than 99.999% of even the tiniest viruses. At the airports, GoAir disinfects the check-in kiosks, gate areas, check-in counters and ticketing counters at regular intervals.
