Social Distancing at Airports: Everything you need to Know

As we have adapted to the new normal for travel, social distancing is a crucial part of it. When it comes to air travel, you may find social distancing markers at airports during check-in, boarding and disembarkation. GoAir has taken all the necessary steps to encourage social distancing from the time you check-in at the airport until you disembark/arrive.

Here is a brief guide on social distancing at airports:

What is social distancing?

Social distancing is a measure recommended by public health officials to slow or reduce the spread of a disease being passed from person to person. WHO (World Health Organization) explains the concept of social distancing as follows:

“Social and physical distancing measures aim to slow the spread of disease by stopping chains of transmission of COVID-19 and preventing new ones from appearing. These measures secure physical distance between people (of at least one metre), and reduce contact with contaminated surfaces, while encouraging and sustaining virtual social connection within families and communities.”

Who should practice social distancing?

At present, anyone who steps outside of their homes into public space must practice social distancing. It is all the more important if you have kids or senior citizens at home.

How to practice social distancing while traveling by air?

The aviation industry has been going above and beyond to implement social distancing across various travel touch points. Please ensure you adhere to the social distancing norms throughout your travel journey.

Here are a few tips for practising social distancing while traveling:

  • Have at least a 1-metre distance between yourself and another person.
  • Wear a face mask and limit interaction with people around you.
  • Follow social distancing markers at airports.
  • Do not sit on chairs with a sticker saying ‘do not sit’ so that proper distance is maintained at the airport.
  • Compulsory web check-in, self-check-in for baggage, self-scan of e-boarding pass are measures taken to ensure social distancing at all travel touch points. Ensure you adhere to these mandates.
  • Follow social distancing norms in the security hold area while waiting for boarding, at the aerobridge/commuting in the coach, while disembarking from the aircraft, during baggage claim and exiting the airport.
  • If you are visiting any food and beverage (F&B) outlet or retail store, then follow social distancing and sanitize your hands frequently.
  • When inside the aircraft, avoid any non-essential movement in the aisle. Avoid going to the lavatories, if possible.

By practising social distancing, you can help protect yourself and the others around you. If you have recently booked a flight and are planning to travel then it is advisable to follow the guidelines for air travel as issued by the government. Your safety is our priority. At GoAir, we have taken all necessary measures to help you have a safe and hassle free flying experience.
