Coronavirus has presented new health safety challenges for air travel and EASA has responded by setting new standards for aviation safety & passenger wellbeing, working closely with the European Centre for Disease Prevention & Control (ECDC) and the European Commission.

As a result, EASA and ECDC issued the COVID-19 Aviation Health Safety Protocol , defining measures to assure the health safety of air travellers and aviation personnel once airlines resume regular flight schedules following the severe disruption caused by COVID-19.
