CarTrawler has announced Flight Plan 2020: Creating Traveller Confidence in the Time of COVID, a report to help those working at airlines and in the travel industry sort through the issue of traveller confidence and how it can be restored, the company said.
Individual airlines, hotels, vacation rentals, car hire, airport transfers, and sightseeing companies are already making decisions to ensure the safety of their customers, which will also increase traveller confidence in the industry.
Examples of what airlines are doing to encourage travelers include:
-Emirates prohibits large carry-on bags in an effort to reduce congestion in the aisles while boarding and deplaning, and to speed the process.
-Etihad Airways is trialling new passenger screening kiosks to help identify travellers at the early phases of COVID-19 infection.
-Hilton introduced a branding and operations platform in partnership with Lysol and the Mayo Clinic to boost guest confidence in hotel accommodations.
-Korean Air has implemented temperature checks for all passengers boarding aircraft at Seoul Incheon Airport.
-United is integrating electrostatic spraying into its cleaning procedures on all flights.
-Xiamen Airlines has an inflight separation zone for ill passengers in the aft cabin.
