Malaysia Airlines (MAS) will be distributing complimentary hygiene kits to its passengers on all flights as part of its Fly Confidently campaign, which was launched in a bid to safeguard the health of its passengers and crew.
According to MAS, each kit will include a face mask, a sachet of hand sanitiser, and a hand sanitising wipe – all packed in a sealed zip-lock bag for hygiene and convenience. The airline also reminded passengers to bring and wear their own protective masks before boarding, and to ensure that they have a sufficient supply of masks for their trip.
Aside from the complimentary hygiene kits, MAS’ Fly Confidently campaign also encompasses a list of hygiene procedures that begin from the pre-flight stage, right up to the travellers’ arrival at their destinations.
“Under this campaign, we produced a series of communication resources such as infographics, travel checklist, and advisories, which are available on our website. Passengers can also refer to these materials to understand the steps they can take to help prevent the spread of Covid-19,” said the chief executive officer of Malaysia Airlines Group, Captain Izham Ismail.
Safety measures highlighted by the campaign include using contactless check-in facilities through MAS’ mobile app or website, imposing social distancing wherever possible, and practising frequent hand sanitisation. They also comply with the guidelines set by international and local regulatory bodies, such as the International Civil Aviation Organisation (ICAO), World Health Organisation (WHO), International Air Transport Association (IATA), and Ministry of Health (MOH).
Airlines have been allowed to resume domestic flights at 100% capacity following the implementation of the recovery movement control order (RMCO). However, all parties must continue to adhere to the various SOPs and hygiene measures throughout the duration of flights to help curb the spread of the pandemic.
