AirAsia Indonesia received seven stars for COVID-19 health ratings by aviation experts at airlineratings.com, an independent plane safety and product rating website. The assessment is based on seven criteria, including information about COVID-19 procedures, personal protective equipment for cabin crew members and aircrafts' routine disinfection.
AirAsia also said it implemented health procedures following guidelines by the government, civil aviation authorities as well as local and global health agencies. All aircrafts are equipped with high efficiency particulate arrestor (HEPA) air filters that are able to filter out 99.9 percent of dust and pollutants. (wir/wng)
