What does Atlantic Airways do to minimize the risk of infection?

Before you board:

We take into account the potential risk of infection, which is why we employ enhanced cleaning procedures on board our aircraft.

We ask all travelers who have been in one of the risk areas to let us know before flying so that we can make the necessary arrangements and minimize the risk of infection as much as possible.

While on board:

The air on the aircraft is cleaned through a special HEPA filter which kills 99.99% of all bacteria.

We have enhanced our on-board practices to reduce the risk of infection, both when it comes to cleaning and hygiene as well as cabin crew procedures and practices.
