  1. Hello!

    Challenging Question, but I will share below article with you that might help:

    “Aircraft will be deep-cleaned every evening using an aircraft-grade, antibacterial and antiviral cleaning solution, according to aviation information obtained by FCM Travel Solutions. Between flights, commonly used areas such as lavatories, tray tables, armrests, seat belts, call buttons and overhead bin handles, are cleaned with a broad-spectrum disinfectant. Afterwards, cabins are treated using sanitising aerosol foggers.

    All staff and customers are required to wear masks for the duration of their journey. On FlySafair, all passengers will be provided with sanitised masks before boarding.

    There will be no magazines, so FCM encourages customers to download digital copies onto their mobile devices before boarding. No catering will be available onboard to prevent touching of shared surfaces.

    All crew will have their temperature taken before duty, and any person who exhibits a temperature over 38°C will be sent home. All customers will also have their temperatures taken before boarding, and any customer with a temperature over 38°C will be denied boarding. The crew are also equipped with digital thermometers to monitor customer temperatures during flight”
