Global airline alliances welcome passengers back

The three global airline alliances - Star Alliance, oneworld and SkyTeam - have come together to highlight the measures airlines are adopting to assure the well-being of customers while traveling.

Dear Travelers, a video by the three alliances, provides a look at what customers can expect on their journeys over the coming months as travel restrictions are slowly eased and the world starts to reopen.

Once customers are ready to fly, they can do so with confidence, assured that airlines and airports around the world are implementing enhanced hygiene and personal safety standards to mitigate risks to health.

oneworld chief executive, Rob Gurney, said: “Safety has always been at the core of our member airlines’ operations and this will continue to be the case.

“With the additional health and well-being measures that have been implemented by our member airlines, and across the industry, customers can embark on their travel with confidence.”

Each of the three global alliances has recently announced initiatives that focus on a multi-layered approach to safe operations, meeting or exceeding the stringent measures recommended by health experts, regulators and leading industry bodies.
