BLUE AIR has become Europe's first BIOSAFETY TRUST Certified airline
Safety first for Blue Air travellers
Blue Air is the first airline in Europe to be certified BIOSAFETY TRUST, which certifies the safety of its activities and flights in the context of the prevention of communicable diseases, including Covid-19.
Following the audit for the RINA Biosafety Trust Certificate, Blue Air became the first airline in Europe to hold a certification attesting to the safety of its activities and flights in the context of the prevention of communicable diseases, including Covid-19.
This Biosafety Trust Certification is a recognition of all Blue Air efforts made during the pandemic: in 2020 we encouraged passengers return flying, explaining there are no COVID-19 associated risks onboard our airplanes because during flight cabin air is filtered using HEPA filters and that we are performing cabin nebulization after each flight. Although we transported many passengers that were tested COVID-19 positive after the flight, due to our protective measures, no Blue Air crew members or other passengers were infected while onboard.
What Biosafety Trust means
The BIOSAFETY TRUST sets out best practices for reducing the risk of spreading epidemics in public places such as transport.
RINA has developed the innovative Biosafety Trust certification, the first certification framework for management systems designed to prevent and mitigate the spread of infections, with the aim of protecting people from the threat of biological agents. The BIOSAFETY TRUST is a tool created to manage the effects of the COVID-19 epidemiological context.
The post-COVID-19 economic recovery integrates, as a permanent priority, the prevention of the spread of infection, in particular for those sectors of activity based on social gatherings. To this end, Biosafety Trust certification supports companies in adopting measures to minimise health risks to employees and customers.
Biosafety Trust certified organisations strengthen their risk management capacity, improving their ability to provide high quality services and reducing direct and indirect costs caused by business interruptions.
