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.
EASA & ECDC have summarised the most important elements from the passenger perspective in a poster:
- Plan your journey
- To the airport
- Departure airport
- On the plane
- Arrival airport
Have a look, click on the image and see the poster to ensure a healthy and safe journey.
The poster is also available in different layout formats and languages on EASA Pro.
EASA compiled a catalogue of FAQs to help passengers with air travel in respect to COVID-19.

Apart from guidance on how to manage passengers, the protocol also sets standards for airports, crew members and their management.
