Entering the new normal era must be exciting for some of you. One of the reasons is because you can finally travel to your favorite country again. There are many transportation options that you can choose to travel from your hometown to your dream destination, one of them is by getting on an airplane.
Most airlines have followed health protocols to ensure the safety of customers. If you buy a flight ticket from tiket.com, you can see the airline with tiket CLEAN label, meaning that the airlines have already implemented health and hygiene protocols. Although you are sure that the airline is clean, you have to change your habits when traveling on an airplane as well to protect yourself.
Change Your Habits, Be Safe!
Here are some tips you can apply when you are traveling on an airplane to reduce transmission risk:
1. Bring Sanitizing Products
Prepare a hand sanitizer in your bag so you always can use it when you need it. When you get on board, spend some time to wipe down your plane seat. As you know that the airplane seat is a public space and viruses can live on surfaces for a long time! You should also disinfect the head and armrest, the seatbelt buckle, the screen, the remote, and the tray table. We know that all of that may seem too much, but better safe than sorry, right? After you touch hard surfaces in an airplane, clean your hand with a hand sanitizer!
2. Choose Your Seat Wisely
During this pandemic, if you have to fly to other countries, try to book a window seat so you can minimize your risk of infection. If you choose the window seat, then there will be fewer people in close proximity, compared to if you are sitting in the middle or on the aisle seat.
Moreover, if you can, choose the seat that is far from the airplane’s toilet. Many people go to the bathroom while onboard and they will go back and forth passing your seat. So, it’s not a good idea to pick the seat near the washroom.
3. Limit Inboard Movement
Although your flight duration may be long and you feel like you need to stretch and go around the airplane, it is best not to do so in the time of the pandemic. If you get bored, find some activities that you can do on your seat such as reading a book or watching a movie.
4. Wear a Facemask
Wear a facemask when you are on the airplane. It may seem simple, but very important to cover your mouth and nose, so you won’t get infected by the virus. Remember, the virus is unseen and could be lurking around every corner.
5. Throw Rubbish in a Trash Basket
Now you already know how to protect yourself, it’s important to protect other people around you as well. Be considerate of others; throw rubbish in a trash basket. Everyone wants to feel safe, just like you! 🙂
Prepare Everything You Need Before Boarding
In times like this, you really have to be very careful and take care of your own safety and health. If you feel unwell, postpone your trip and stay at home first.
During the new normal, not only that you can enjoy a trip abroad again, but you can also enjoy activities in your hometown. For instance, you can go for a spa treatment or have a haircut at your favorite salon. Well, there are a lot of activities you can find under To Dos category by tiket.com. Welcome to the new normal era and always be safe!!
