Covid-19 and flying: Compulsory bag wraps, no food and stringent temperature checks
No touching, self-scanning your digital boarding ticket and compulsory bag wrapping are some of the measures that have been taken as domestic flights are set to resume this month.
The Department of Transport and its state-owned partners, including the Airports Company South Africa (Acsa), the Civil Aviation Authority, Port Health, and airliners, say they believe the country is ready to undergo flights at 100% capacity this month.
Aircraft will be disinfected daily and between flights. A high efficiency particular air (HEPA) filter, which is stored with the cargo, will be in use.
HEPA apparently kills bacteria by trapping microscopic particles.
Between flights, aircraft will be sanitised, wiped and cleaned, and a fogger can will be utilised.
