Aegean Airlines has introduced Hygiene Attendants to assist passengers in following safety measures while boarding, in flight and during disembarkation.

    The airline says that they will bear a special insignia to make them easy to spot by passengers.

    According to Aegean, Hygiene Attendants, through a pleasant disposition while always understanding of the new circumstances imposed to the passengers due to the pandemic, will kindly remind all passengers:

    • the correct and continuous use of masks in flight, whilst simultaneously caring for its use during certain circumstances such as during the consumption of snacks and beverages
    • to keep distances while boarding and disembarking the aircraft as well as limit their mobility during the flight
    • and answer to any queries passengers may have, concerning safety measures, safety protocols, cleaning and disinfecting processes, the air circulation and recycling process in the cabin.

    Aegean’s cabin crew manager, Giannis Tzovanis, said: “As safety measures against the pandemic have affected our lives, and respectively the way we travel, we at Aegean, are working towards continuing to provide the same high level of service, care and warmth that our passengers have been accustomed to throughout the years.

    “Hygiene Attendants will be by your side and help you travel more confidently and with peace of mind, whilst making sure that all necessary safety and prevention measures are implemented. After all, according to recent studies, air travel remains the safest way to travel, as the risk of passengers being infected by the Covid-19 virus in an aircraft has been proven to be extremely low.”

    The airline said that its commitment and care for the health and safety of its people and passengers has been its “top priority” since the beginning of the pandemic by increasing the regular cleaning of the aircraft between all flights and intensifying disinfection procedures.

    Furthermore, it noted that as air travel resumed, Aegean quickly adjusted to the new circumstances and followed throughout all its flights and at each level of the passenger’s trip, new processes and enhanced health and safety measures, while always remaining in close cooperation with the authorities.

    Aegean also implements a regular fortnightly preventive Covid-19 molecular testing program to its cabin crew and selected non-flight staff and has so far conducted more than 13,000 Covid-19 molecular tests on its workforce.
