Travelling in Times of Corona
The safety and well-being of passengers and crews are our top priority. Chair Airlines fully implements the hygiene measures and service concepts of the European Union Aviation Safety Agency (EASA) and the Federal Office of Public Health (FOPH). Since the minimum distances in the cabin cannot always be maintained‚ all passengers aged six years and older as well as all crew members are required to wear a protective mask. In addition‚ the interaction between crew and passengers during the flight is kept to a minimum. Furthermore‚ our entire fleet is equipped with special "HEPA" air filters as standard.
Only fly when you feel healthy
Make sure that you only embark on your journey in case you feel healthy. Stay at home with symptoms such as: fever‚ cough‚ shortness of breath and loss of taste or smell.
Cover your mouth and nose
Ensure you have enough protective masks for your journey. Covering mouth and nose is mandatory on our flights for all passengers of 6 years and older.
Follow the general rules
Follow the general rules on hygiene and physical distancing such as washing your hands‚ keeping distance when queuing etc.
Plan more time
Be aware that you will need more time at the airport for checks and new procedures. Please be at the airport 3-4 hours prior to your departure.
Check entry requirements
Inform yourself about the entry regulations at your destination. If necessary‚ download the appropriate entry forms and complete them before departure.
Limited on-board service
Our service on board is limited. Until further notice‚ you cannot buy drinks‚ snacks or duty-free items on board. For each passenger there is a water bottle (0.5l) in her/his seat pocket.
Here‚ passengers have the opportunity to find out about the corona measures applicable in the individual countries. This information is always updated. In principle‚ however‚ it is the responsibility of the passengers to familiarize themselves with the current entry requirements and to meet the relevant conditions.
