Iata Health Checklist



Iata has released the ‘Iata Health Safety Checklist for Airline Operators’ which provides the standards, recommended practices, associated guidance material and other supporting information necessary for an operator in the air transport chain to self-assess, according to a press release.

The checklist was created to support the International Civil Aviation Organization’s (ICAO) Take-off: Guidance for Air Travel through the COVID-19 Public Health Crisis. This is the global standard framework of risk-based temporary measures for governments and the air transport value chain for safe operations during the COVID-19 crisis.

Sections of the checklist cover:

  • Pre-arrival notification;

  • Check in;

  • Embarkation and disembarkation;

  • Aircraft cleaning;

  • On board air quality;

  • In-flight operations;

  • Flight and cabin crew;

  • Crew layover;

  • Airport facilities.

“A harmonized approach to health is key not only to the recovery of civil aviation but also to ‘building back better,’ which is crucially important to ensuring the future resilience of the aviation network,” said ICAO’s Council President, Salvatore Sciacchitano.

The checklist can be used free of charge by interested airlines, and is available here.
