Measures to follow before embarcation:

  • Before departure, it is important to have proper communication, coordination and planning with concerned authorities.

  • Aircrafts should be equipped with enough medical staff to cater for the anticipated number of nationals. Charter companies should ensure that staff are dressed with appropriate equipment/supplies to provide care for any illness on the way. 

  • Non-medical staff have to be properly dressed according to standards as well. They should be aware about all the signs and symptoms to recognise any symptoms of Covid-19.

  • It is essential to carry out an exit screening whereby temperature measurement is taken and a questionnaire is completed for early detection of symptoms. These results have to be shared with the receiving country. 

  • If there are suspected cases of symptomatic passengers at the exit screening, their travel should be delayed and advised for further evaluation and treatment.  

Measures to follow while onboard:

  • If it happens that a passenger is displaying symptoms, the seating location should be left idle and those around should be considered for a follow up upon arrival. 

  • Cabin crew staff are expected to advise ground-based medical service providers through the control tower if there are suspected cases on the aircraft. 


In unstable situations such as civil unrest, emerging war zones, natural disasters or travel disruption, chartering a repatriation flight is often the best option in order to leave a risk area safely and quickly. With proper expertise and knowledge to coordinate the evacuation from risk regions, travellers can be safely repatriated. Using private charters as repatriation flights certainly brings hope and relief for all those stranded in foreign countries during emergency situations. Due to the cost-effectiveness, comfort and most importantly, safety, private charters are the best way to travel in the midst of any crisis.
