Air France Receives 5-Star COVID19 Airline Safety Rating from Skytrax

(28 July 2021)
Air France received a 5-star COVID19 Airline Safety
Rating from Skytrax on Tuesday.

Air France is the first major European airline to
receive this award, which is an improvement on the 4-star rating
it received in January 2021.

The 5-star rating is the highest an airline can
receive in this global benchmark for certifying COVID19 air travel
health and safety standards.


Among the measures taken by Air France, the rating agency evaluated
the cleaning and disinfection procedures at the airport and on
board aircraft, recycling of the cabin air, special signage and
floor markings to ensure physical distancing, the compulsory
wearing of masks, provision of hand sanitizer and an adapted
service in the Air France lounges and on board aircraft.

Following a comprehensive audit of those measures
carried out in June 2021, Skytrax confirmed the
strict application of procedures for cleaning and disinfecting
frequently touched surfaces at the airport and on board the
company’s aircraft.

“We are proud to obtain this 5-star rating which
once again recognizes the immense efforts made by Air France teams
on a daily basis to guarantee the implementation of our Air France
Protect programme,” said Fabien Pelous, SVP Air France Customer Experience.
“It is also an additional incentive to pursue our efforts to
ensure our customers travel with complete peace of mind.”
