Here at 1 Piso Fare, We’ve already featured some of the safety protocols by Philippine Airlines and Cebu Pacific to combat the spread of disease once we are all allowed to go out and travel.
These procedures are now being called the ” NEW NORMAL” with social distancing, hand sanitation and wearing face masks will be observed more often.
As one of the top airliners in the region, Air Asia will also implement their NEW NORMAL rules once flights both for domestic and international destinations came back to normal. See the new rules below:
Air Asia requests their guests to wear facemasks during
- Entering the Airport
- Check in and Baggage Deposit
- During the flight
- Claiming of baggage
Air Asia also advises their passengers to arrive early. Before, it is normal to be at the check in counter 2 hours before the flight. But because we are now under the NEW NORMAL, airline companies such as Air Asia are urging their guests to check in at least 3 hours before their flights.
AIR ASIA PRE NEW NORMAL FLIGHT PROCEDURE
Aside from wearing facemask, each passenger will undergo thermal checks to see who are having fevers and require immediate care and medication.
Social distancing must be observed at all cost. Please observe floor markers at queuing areas such as Check In Counters and Boarding Gates.
Several areas will be supplied with Hand Sanitizers for everyone’s use.
If you want to avoid the line, you can check in via the Air Asia App or website.
