As an airline that is committed to the wellbeing of its passengers, crew members and the entire public, Turkish Airlines has continued to prioritize safety measures to minimize the effects and spread of COVID 19.

In line with the guidelines of both local and international civil aviation authorities, all Turkish Airlines planes are disinfected with substances approved by the World Health Organization (WHO) and aircraft manufacturers. All surfaces passengers come in contact with, go through extensive cleaning processes by a dedicated special hygiene team.

“We have taken extra measures since the beginning of the Novel Coronavirus (COVID-19) epidemic to minimize both its effects and spreading. Our foremost priority being the safety and well-being of our passengers and crew members”, a statement on the airline’s Website reads.

At the point of passenger boarding, crew members monitor passengers while welcoming them on board and throughout the flight. In the case of a passenger showing symptoms of the disease, the passenger in question undergoes a medical check with the directives of the host country’s health authority. During flights, the cabin air is repetitively purified with hospital-grade High-efficiency Particulate Air (HEPA) filters. The filtration system constantly disinfects the air of any harmful substance in the air during flights. All passengers are also required to complete the passenger self-reporting form distributed by the Federal Ministry of Health.
