  • All staff will wear Personal Protective Equipment (PPE). 
  • Passengers will undergo a touch-less thermometer screening with each flight. 
  • Headsets will not be provided on any flight to limit droplet transmission.
  • All air vents will be open during the entire duration of the flight to ensure proper airflow. 
  • Eating of any kind will not be permitted on any aircraft. 
  • Passengers will answer COVID-19 exposure questionnaire
  • Passengers will be asked to bring their own mask and will be required to wear a mask for the duration of the flight
