We have undertaken a thorough review of our guest handling procedures both on ground and onboard in light of the Covid-19 pandemic. We have been working closely with the airport authorities to ensure that all the relevant precautionary measures are in place to ensure a safe, pleasant and comfortable journey for everyone” said the President of AirAsia Group, Bo Lingam.

The airline advises passengers to follow the recommended protective measures as “wearing a mask, social distancing and observing high personal hygiene”. The airline adds that all of its airplanes are equipped with High Efficiency Particulate Air (HEPA) filters and that a “thorough disinfection” will take place after each flight,.
