The cleanliness of our aircraft is of utmost importance. We have reviewed and made changes to our cleaning programme for aircraft including increasing our cleaning teams and audit inspections.
Our disinfectant cleaning fluids are used on every aircraft after each flight to thoroughly clean all hard surfaces in the cabins and lavatories.
All our aircraft are fitted with HEPA filters which remove particulate and bacterial contamination and provide passengers with clean air. They provide the same level of air filtration as hospital operating theatres.

A full selection of special meals are available to pre-order when booking a flight.
Customers can eat any food brought with them that does not require heating or chilling, although we suggest they purchase food before they reach the airport as many restaurants and shops may be closed. We‘ll continue to assist parents who need to heat milk for their children.
