The Future Flight Experience

The future flight experience

As we progress towards reopening our borders and look forward to the possibility to travel once more, here are some changes that may expect to  find in our air travel experience:


  • Contactless check-in & scanning of boarding passes
  • Sanitising stations throughout terminals & at departure gates
  • Temperature checks via thermal scanners
  • Protective barriers installed at check-in counters
  • Social distancing protocols, e.g. physical indicators on the ground & in waiting areas, stricter boarding controls


  • Enhanced cleaning, focussed on seats, seatbelts, overhead lockers, air vents & toilets
  • No inflight magazines or printed materials in seat pockets
  • Reduced cabin baggage to essential items only
  • Modified inflight catering that minimise crew & passenger touchpoints, e.g. bottled water & packaged food
  • The provision of face masks or the option to bring your own
  • Sanitiser wipes available for guests to wipe down their own seats, trays & armrests
  • Hospital grade HEPA filtering of air-conditioning systems
  • Limited movement around the cabin mid flight

Post flight

  • Enhanced cleaning and disinfection processes to ensure safety and proper sanitation
