Enhanced Wellbeing on board

From Monday 8 June, passengers travelling on Blue Islands flights will be required to wear face masks* adding to a range of multi-layered measures we already have in place for passenger wellbeing.

The continued safety and wellbeing of our passengers and crew is always our highest priority which is why we have implemented our enhanced wellbeing measures on board.

Some of our measures are immediately obvious such as being offered hand sanitiser on boarding and the withdrawal of our inflight service. However, we wanted to inform our passengers of the further, enhanced procedures we have activated behind the scenes.

Microbe Shield surface protection in the cabin
Water based and invisible to the naked eye, Microbe Shield is 100% food safe, environmentally friendly and bonds with surfaces to provide a long lasting protection against virus and germ pathogens including Coronavirus.

Aircraft touch point sanitation procedures
Daily deep cleaning all aircraft touch points continues on all touch points around the aircraft and cabin including handrails, armrests, tray tables, seat belts, overhead locker handles and all areas in an around the toilet.

Seat allocation and distancing 
We are allocating seats to maximise the distance between passengers in the cabin where possible.

Hand sanitiser
Hand sanitiser will be available when boarding our aircraft and throughout the flight.

Reduced contact points
With the exception of safety cards, all seat-back literature has been removed and there is no inflight service.

Air is replenished with fresh air every 5 - 7 minutes
Following Covid-19 guidance from aircraft manufacture ATR, our aircraft are now configured so no cabin air is recirculated, and cabin air is continuously replenished with fresh air every 5-7 minutes. Therefore the cabin may be slightly cooler than normal, therefore you may wish to have a jumper to hand.

*You will be exempt if you have a medical reason not to wear a face mask, written medical advice will be required, please inform us at check-in. Children under 6 years old are also exempt.
