COVID-19 Coronavirus & Travelers.

Do you need to travel by air or have traveled recently? Or has your trip been canceled? Below are a few resources to help you through the Coronavirus (COVID-19) crisis.

What you should know if you have or need to travel by air

While the risk of catching an infection on an aircraft is typically lower than in a shopping center or an office environment, there are simple measures you can take to further reduce the risk of illness if you are traveling. These include practicing hand hygiene by washing them regularly with soap or an alcohol-based sanitizer, and not touching your face, especially eyes, nose, and mouth.

While you must not travel when you are ill, should you experience symptoms suggestive of respiratory illness during or after a trip, seek medical attention and share your travel history with your health care provider. Most governments also provide clear instructions.

Top Questions
Is there a need to cut down on air travel to reduce the chances of getting infected by the Coronavirus?

The WHO is not advising any restrictions on travel or trade, even though many countries have made decisions to introduce them. However, the situation continues to change rapidly, and there are many practical considerations relating to insurance, or isolation requirements, which could impact travel.

Is the risk of contracting a virus on a plane higher than in a shopping center or in an office?

We assess that the risk is lower. Compared with those locations, a modern aircraft has its cabin air changed many times more frequently than offices or shops. The air supplied to the aircraft cabin is either fresh or is filtered through HEPA filters of the same efficacy (99.97% or better) in removing viruses as those used in surgical operating rooms. As in a shopping center or an office, the biggest risk is if someone remains in the environment while unwell with a viral infection. Hence maintain good personal hygiene is key!

What can passengers do to protect themselves from Coronavirus infection on board?

The range of simple measures advised by WHO are effective even for passengers on a flight: careful hand-washing on a regular basis, or at least hand sanitize, avoiding touching other people, covering coughs and sneezes (and then hand-washing), avoiding travelling if becoming unwell, and avoiding contact with anyone who appears to be unwell.

One question that is often asked is whether passengers should wear masks when on a flight. Wear a mask if you are not feeling well. Otherwise there is no need to do so.

Can IATA help me with my airline/travel agency complaint?

While we serve the airline industry, we are not a regulatory body, and cannot intervene in service conflicts or other commercial matters involving airlines or agents and their customers. For any issue, we recommend you to contact the customer service department of the respective airline or agent directly.
Where can I find passport, visa and health regulations advice?

The IATA Travel Centre is the most accurate information source available for personalized passport, visa and health requirement advice depending on your nationality and destination. Our immigration specialists constantly update this information. But rules and regulations change on a daily basis.

Possessing the correct documentation does not guarantee entry to a foreign country. Local immigration authorities have complete control whether an individual is granted entry and under what conditions and airlines may also apply specific guidelines. Re-check requirements close to your departure.
