COVID-19 Prevention and Protection Measures

Dear customers!

Please travel responsibly and follow simple but very important rules to keep you and your loved ones healthy.

We appeal to you to be extremely careful and follow the COVID-19 safety measures. All airport visitors are required to wear protective face masks and gloves, and maintain social distancing. Airport staff are entitled to conduct selective body temperature checks. In case of a fever, you have to refer to the medical center.

Wearing a mask is an absolute requirement for everyone on board of Pobeda Airlines. Customers without masks will not be allowed to board.

  1. The air in the Pobeda Airlines aircraft cabin is as clean as in sterile operating theaters of a hospital. The Pobeda Airlines aircraft are equipped with modern HEPA filters (High Efficiency Particulate Air Filter), which are 99.9% efficient at capturing the smallest airborne viral particles in the aircraft cabin. Cabin air is completely changed every 3 minutes.
  2. Additional disinfection measures have been introduced to ensure that all surfaces in the cabin are infection-free.
  3. Our crew regularly undergo health check-ups.
  4. Please note that it is mandatory to wear masks and gloves on any public transport, including airplanes. Personal protective equipment is to be worn throughout the whole flight.
  5. You can make use of either your own hand sanitizer or antibacterial soap provided by the carrier (You can find it in the lavatory).

 

Please ensure that you review the rules and restrictions in force in the arrival region beforehand. Precise information can be provided by accommodation facilities or regional bodies of Rospotrebnadzor (Federal Service for Surveillance on Consumer Rights Protection and Human Wellbeing).

Please be patient, follow simple hygiene rules, and responsibly follow the COVID-19 safety measures. With our concerted effort, we can defeat any viruses.

The video guide on the use of personal protective equipment is available on our Youtube.
