Qatar Airways’ Cabin Crew Now Wear Full Body Suits During Flights

Qatar Airways has further enhanced its onboard safety measures for passengers and cabin crew in order to prevent the spread of the coronavirus.

The airline has introduced Personal Protective Equipment (PPE) suits for cabin crew while onboard, as well as a modified service that reduces interactions between the passengers and the crew inflight.

Cabin crew have already been wearing PPE during flights for a number of weeks, including gloves and face masks.

As of May 25 the airline requires passengers to wear face coverings inflight and recommends that people bring their own for fit and comfort purposes.

Qatar Airways has also applied other additional health and safety measures onboard its flights: Business Class meals will be served on a tray instead of a table set up, and a cutlery wrap will be offered to passengers as an alternative to individual cutlery service, in an effort to reduce contact between the crew and the passengers.

In the Economy Class, all meals and cutlery are served sealed as usual.

Additionally, large bottles of hand sanitiser will be placed in the galleys and made available for both cabin crew and passengers. All social areas onboard the aircraft have also been closed to observe social distancing measures.

Passengers can also opt to the ‘Do Not Disturb (DND)’ indicator in their private suite, if they wish to limit their interactions with the cabin crew.

The airline recently announced that it has begun a phased approach to expand its network to an initial 52 destinations by the end of May, and 80 in June.
