There have been many changes in the airline industry since the pandemic took place. However, one thing remains the same that is the effort to ensure a safe environment. As the world has reopened for travel, more people are making plans to meet their dear ones. Here's how you can fly safely and reduce potential exposure during the virus season.

Fly when airports are least busy
Fly when airports and airlines are at their lowest to help the number of people you encounter. Morning and evenings are the popular times but try booking your flights during the non peak hours. Book a night flight as passengers are often sleeping so there will be fewer people walking in the aisles. Try also booking mid-week flights that will be less crowded. Once you are at the airport, you can avoid crowds by visiting an airport lounge until your flight begins. Minimize trips to the in-airport restaurants and shops. 

Do not fly if unwell
No one likes cancelling plans if fallen unwell. If you have a trip of visiting your family members or want to go for a vacation, cancel if you are unwell. Your immune system needs to be strong and not weak. Even if you are feeling under the weather, you will put yourself at a high risk of catching an infection. The best option here is to not fly and also get yourself tested before your illness comes.

Limit contact
Try limiting your contact with people and other employee staff at the airport. When you arrive at the airport, ensure that you use your smartphone to check that your flight is in time. Always keep the option of doing self-check-in kiosks. Most airports will also give you the option of showing boarding pass on your phone. If technology is your best friend, print a boarding pass from home so that you do not have to wait in long queues at the airport.
