Latvian airline airBaltic has been named as one of the Top twenty airlines for COVID-19 compliance by the safety, product, and COVID-19 rating agency Airlineratings.com. airBaltic has compiled with all the criteria thus receiving 7 out of 7 stars.
According to Geoffrey Thomas, Editor-in-Chief of Airlineratings.com, these airlines have gone above and beyond in the protection of passengers or in adding flexibility to travel. “All these airlines have been trendsetters in making travel as safe as possible. Most major airlines have aggressively implemented a COVID-19 action plan and we have been surprised at how quickly some have achieved full compliance,” Mr. Thomas said.
Airlineratings.com agency surveyed 430 airlines for COVID-19 compliance. For full compliance airlines must have seven criteria in place: website information on COVID-19 procedures, face masks for passengers, personal protection equipment for the crew, modified meal service, deep clean of aircraft, personal sanitizer kit, and social distancing onboarding.
Along with airBaltic the rating agency has recognized several industry leaders like Delta Air Lines, Emirates, Etihad Airways, KLM, Lufthansa and others. The full list is available here: https://www.airlineratings.com/news/worlds-top-twenty-covid-19-compliant-airlines/.
In addition, airBaltic has received the maximum 7-star rating in the Airlineratings.com annual safety report. The safety rating for each airline is based on a comprehensive analysis of different criteria and combined with audits from the world’s aviation governing body ICAO and leading association, IATA, along with the latest COVID-19 compliance data.
