Flight schedules are about to start ramping up, which means its time to reassure passengers. Both Aer Lingus and Ryanair have published videos designed to do just that.
Those with a phobia of germs should have their minds put completely at ease after seeing these. Perhaps it will even get people to book some airline tickets for a late summer holiday.
Aer Lingus and Ryanair Videos
First up is Aer Lingus, where everyone is decked out in the new uniforms. Running for just over three minutes, the video outlines the new measures put in place to reduce the risk of spreading infections. It also showcases a variety of Irish accents.
What is interesting to see is the spray treating of the cabin interiors and the actual air filters. You hear a lot about those that are hospital grade and remove 99.97% of airborne particles, yet you don’t often see them. I like that!
Ryanair’s video is largely similar, though it does subtly upsell, asking people to buy Priority Boarding where possible and to buy Fast-Track security to minimise queuing. A stand out is that there will be “no dwelling in the boarding stairwell or air bridges”. If you have flown Ryanair, you know this is very common, so I’m curious as to how they’ll manage this.
These videos from Aer Lingus and Ryanair are part of a bunch of similar presentations from airlines around the world. I think most people will appreciate them, even if it’s just to know what to expect at the airport.
Let’s hope there is no second wave and that we will be able to ditch the face masks, social distancing, plastic barriers and queues as soon as possible. Either way, countries are opening up to tourism, so looks like it’s time to get booking.
What do you think of the Aer Lingus and Ryanair videos? Are you planning to fly this year? Thank you for reading and if you have any comments or questions, please leave them below.
