The pandemic has resulted in crew training centres operating at low capacities, due to health restrictions and social distancing requirements. In the current circumstances, air operators may not be able to train their crews with the traditional classroom methods used pre-COVID-19.
Therefore, EASA has developed COVID-19 guidelines to address the conduct of cabin crew recurrent training, proposing different training methods and mitigation measures that could be used for the duration of the pandemic. These guidelines are not intended to change the existing regulatory requirements.
The guidelines are addressed to competent authorities and air operators with the aim of ensuring continuity of cabin crew recurrent training.
