KUALA LUMPUREvery airline in the AirAsia group has received the top seven stars for Covid-19 health ratings from aviation safety experts at Airlineratings.com after implementing numerous industry innovations in recent times to make flying more seamless, hygienic and contactless than ever before .
As outlined on the Airlineratings.com website, airlines are assessed on seven criteria, AirAsia said in a statement today.
These include website information on Covid-19 procedures, wearing face masks, crew personal protective equipment, custom meal service, regular thorough cleaning of aircraft, personal decontamination kits and onboard social distances, he said.
“It was worrying to find that many airlines were found not to meet the standards agreed with Covid-19 for the protection of passengers and crew.
“That is changing and our team reviews compliance on a weekly basis. AirAsia was one of the first airlines to aggressively adopt all recommendations, ”said Geoffrey Thomas, editor-in-chief of Airlineratings.com.
“These are based on the criteria set by the International Air Transport Association (IATA), the International Civil Aviation Organization (ICAO) and the World Health Organization (WHO) on regional and international safety guidelines,” he added.
Earlier this week, AirAsia announced its latest innovation, Scan2Fly – a leading technology that can determine whether a passenger is eligible to fly before arriving at the airport, including real-time verification of relevant health documentation.
AirAsia also confirmed numerous other recent improvements already made, including automated bag drop services, roving temperature control technology and biometric facial recognition technology FACES (Fast Airport Clearance Experience System) – the airline’s contactless passenger facial recognition processing system. – Named
