Air Canada has launched Air Canada CleanCare+. This program uses new and existing preventative measures to keep you safe while travelling with the airline.
This program reduces the risk of exposure to COVID-19 with mandatory pre-flight customer temperature checks, health questionnaires, seat assignment policies to allow for more personal space (in Economy Class on all flights until June 30, 2020), and even providing travellers with care with hand sanitizer and wipes.
Air Canada is also introducing electrostatic spraying of cabin interiors. Existing aircraft grooming procedures already incorporate the use of hospital grade disinfectant and specialized techniques to maintain cabin cleanliness.
“Air Canada CleanCare+ will not only provide protections at the personal level, by better monitoring our customers’ fitness to fly and providing for more personal space in Economy Class, but it also sets new standards for cabin cleanliness and ensures our employees have the best tools to maintain it. Coupled with other new safety practices we implemented earlier in response to COVID-19, Air Canada CleanCare+ will provide travellers with the confidence that they can book and fly safely with Air Canada as they consider their travel plans in the current environment.”
~ Calin Rovinescu, President and Chief Executive Officer of Air Canada.
In order to protect all customers Air Canada is introducing the following measures by May 15:
- Air Canada travellers will be subject to an infra-red temperature check and government-mandated health questionnaire at all airports. Customers who are deemed unfit to travel will be rebooked at no cost but be required to obtain medical clearance prior to travel.
- No Economy Class customer will be required to sit beside, unless they are required to do so to assist another passenger they are travelling with. This policy will be in effect until at least June 30, 2020.
- Care kits containing hand sanitizers and other health items will be distributed to to all customers.
- Air Canada was recognized by the 2019 Skytrax World Airline Awards for Best Airline Cabin Cleanliness in North America. Since then they have strengthened cabin grooming standards and will begin using state-of-the-art electrostatic sprayers to ensure a deeper clean.
