To support the safety of passengers and crew, DC Aviation has implemented a constant COVID-19 pre-flight test cycle for its crew and flight support personnel. A positive test result would lead to that person immediately entering a phase of self-isolation, and not participating in flights.
The test programme was introduced on the initiative of Dr Lutz Helmig, owner of DC Aviation. Dr Helmig, a renowned physician, is known in Germany for founding the Helios hospital group, the largest private hospital group in Europe.
DC Aviation’s entry formalities have also been adapted to take account of social distancing requirements. Security measures for passengers are the top priority at all times. Gloves, masks and hand disinfectants are mandatory and available at every stage of the flight, from arrival to disembarkation. All DC Aviation aircraft undergo an intensified cleaning and disinfection process after each flight.
“The health and safety of our passengers and crew is of paramount importance,” said Michael Kuhn, CEO of DC Aviation. “We introduced the test programme to ensure the safety of passengers and to give them the assurance that we are doing everything to create the safest possible travel environment for them. All DC Aviation aircraft are equipped with hygiene and protective equipment and we are fully conversant with the correct and current hygiene guidelines for air travel. We firmly believe in delivering the most effective solutions and this exemplary initiative is another step forward in ensuring the highest safety standards for our passengers and crews.”
