AirAsia Group is 100% vaccinated and ready to fly. Its operating crew and frontline staff were fully vaccinated. AirAsia Group also roles out numerous contactless safety and hygiene measures in place. This action is to ensure the maintenance of the highest standards. This action is well ahead of a resumption of air travel, expected soon.
“We are ready to fly,” said Group CEO Tan Sri Tony Fernandes. “Part of our strict safety policy is mandating that all of our operating crew and frontline staff serving guests are fully vaccinated. This group includes pilots, cabin crew and airport staff as they return to work,” he added.
“We’ve always been about the people. It doesn’t just stop with our own Allstars (employees). We assure our guests of peace of mind when travelling with us again.
Fully vaccinated markets mean a return to travel.
“The acceleration of vaccines in all of our key markets sets us up for a strong return to the skies. Malaysia now boasts of more than 50% vaccination among its adult population. Malaysia is tracking to have at least 80% of its population vaccinated by the end of 2021. We also see much progress in Singapore, Korea and the Philippines.”
“More than 50 countries in the world have begun to welcome vaccinated travellers again. We are hopeful that ASEAN countries will soon ease travel restrictions as they accelerate the vaccination effort. We also look forward to more travel bubble resumption.
Importantly, we are ready for take-off.”
The safety of staff and guests is always the top priority for AirAsia Group. It was one of the first airlines worldwide to achieve the maximum 7/7 rating for Covid-19 safe by the aviation experts at Airlineratings.com. All of the airlines in the Group gained IOSA accreditation. IOSA is the global benchmark for upholding the highest safety standards at all times. This is also why the airline aimed for fully vaccinated staff. Furthermore, the airline has used the downtime to implement robust procedures and innovations to make flying even safer and more hygienic than ever.
