Emirates provides protective wear for its cabin crew

Earlier this month, Emirates announced the reopening of special passenger flights to selected designations in an attempt to help stranded individuals in the UAE return home amid the coronavirus pandemic.



To ensure the safety of all employees and passengers, Emirates has adopted additional health and safety measures by providing staff members with extra protective equipment. Alongside the protective mask and gloves, all employees must wear a disposable protective gown over their uniforms and a safety visor while on the job. “Your health and well-being remains our first priority,” said Emirates.

Emirates clarified that all inflight meals are pre-packed and handed to the passengers unopened, and no printed reading material will be provided onboard to curb the spread of the novel coronavirus which has now infected over 2.5 million people worldwide.

Additionally, The Dubai Airport declared that it is compulsory for all on-ground and onboard crew and passengers, of every airline, to wear protective masks and gloves. Thermal scanners had been installed to screen any potential COVID-19 cases prior to entering the facility.
