*In view of the constantly changing rules and travel restrictions, the above schedule will be adjusted accordingly.

  • Wearing a face mask is compulsory on all its flightsfor all passengers, crew members and agents in contact with customers,
  • The modification of customer channels on the ground with the implementation of physical distancing along the customer journey at the airport and the installation of Plexiglas protection screens at airports each time when it is possible,
  • Hand sanitizer available at all contact points throughout the airport (self-service kiosks, baggage drop-off, boarding, etc.),
  • Our boarding procedures have been reorganized to limit contact on board our aircraft. We therefore first board customers sitting at the back of the aircraft, moving up to those at the front.
