The COVID-19 pandemic has significantly disrupted the airline business and resulted in crisis of the entire aviation industry. Governments together with all aviation stakeholders are joining forces to come up with a common plan for a progressive restart of the operations.

According to IATA Medical Advisory Group, the cleaning and disinfection procedures, in excess of the previous norms, are likely to form part of the range of measures required in a restart process. It is likely that improved routine cleaning could provide reassurance to passengers and increase their confidence in the reduced risk of the transmission of communicable diseases in aviation processes.
