EASA Safety Information Bulletins & Safety Promotion Material
The European Union Aviation Safety Agency (EASA) has recently provided additional promotional material for airlines and their crews regarding the Coronavirus ‘2019-nCoV’ outbreak.
This material supports the Safety Information Bulletin (SIB) that was issued on 27/01/2020, giving recommendations to national aviation authorities, airlines and airports. The new material is intended to raise the awareness of operators and their crews about the practical measures they can take to reduce the risk of the virus spreading.
You are encouraged to share this information with all staff and display the material on noticeboards and other areas.
In addition, it is recommended that airlines and operators should ensure that:
A sufficient quantity of potable water is available in the water tank of aircraft prior to departure
A sufficient number of gloves is available on board
Disinfectant gel is available for the crew
While on the ground with passengers onboard, the maximum time without air conditioning/ventilation should be less than 30 minutes
More information for passengers and members of the public about Coronavirus can be found at the World Health Organisation website.
You can find all the latest information at European Level on the European Commission Coronavirus website.
