(Ho Chi Minh City, March 3, 2021) – Vietjet has been certified with seven-stars, the world’s highest rating for Covid-19 compliance for global airlines by AirlineRatings.
AirlineRatings, the world’s famous airline safety and product rating website, is the first website with COVID-19 ratings for airlines. The seven-star list also named other renowned airlines such as Emirates, Etihad Airways, British Airways, Qatar Airways, Delta Air Lines, Jetblue, Lufthansa, Southwest, Air New Zealand, KLM, etc.
For full compliance, airlines must have seven criteria in place, including website information on Covid-19 procedures; face masks for passengers; deep clean of aircraft and protection equipment for the crew. The criteria also focuses on social distancing and modified meal services.
Vietjet Vice President To Viet Thang said: “Our modern fleet is equipped with HEPA (High Efficiency Particulate Air system), which can filter up to 99.7% of dust, bacterias and viruses. Also, Vietjet’s full compliance of safety standards together with staff’s cooperation have contributed to our safe transportation of millions of passengers during the escalating Covid-19 outbreak in Vietnam. Especially, none of our employees have been infected with Covid-19 so far.”
The Corona Prevention Commitee of Vietjet, teamed up by doctors, health and safety experts, has been working effectively to ensure the airline’s utmost safety, according to Thang. In addition to providing mask and protection equipment for frontliners such as pilots, flight attendants, ground staff, technicians, the airline also quickly installed the isolation shield with sanitizers at all of its check-in counters. Aircraft disinfection and sterilisation is carried out daily. Vietjet also plans to vaccinate all staff in the near future.
