KUALA LUMPUR:

Following the latest innovation in the industry in order to make the flight smooth, hygienic, and contactless, each airline in Air Asia has been given the 7 top stars for COVID-19 Air Safety experts at Airlineratings.com. Airlines are evaluated by seven requirements as illustrated on the website of Airlineratings.com, AirAsia said.

It mentioned that it includes information about COVID-19 website procedures, wearing face masks, crew's personal protection equipment, amended meals, routine aircraft deep cleaning, staff sanitizer kits, and social distance.

“It was concerning to find that many airlines did not appear to comply with the COVID-19 agreed standards for the protection of passengers and crew.

“That is changing and our team is reviewing compliance on a weekly basis. AirAsia was one of the first airlines to aggressively adopt all the recommendations,” Airlineratings.com editor-in-chief Geoffrey Thomas was quoted as saying. 

“These are based on the criteria set out by the International Air Transport Association (IATA), the International Civil Aviation Organisation (ICAO) and the World Health Organisation (WHO) on regional and international safety guidelines,” he added.

AirAsia launched the latest innovation earlier this week, Scan2Fly — an industry-leading system that can assess a passenger's eligibility of flying before arriving at the airport and check the health records in real-time.

The company's contactless passenger recognition system is a reputable company that confirmed many other recent updates, including automated bag drop systems, roving technology for temperature control, and F.A.C.E.S. (Fast Airport Clearance Experience System).
