SunExpress issues safety measures
SunExpress advises its passengers to arrive at the airport three hours before departure due to hygiene and social distancing rules and reminds that it is mandatory to wear masks on all its flights. The airline has also updated its in-flight services to minimize contact. While the limited service will only be available on flights that are more than two hours long, SunExpress will no longer offer meals on flights under two hours. According to directives from the relevant authorities, the airline will not accept any cabin baggage on board except essential items such as laptops, handbags, briefcases and baby items. SunExpress will also distribute disinfectant wipes to passengers on board all its flights.
All passengers travelling from Turkey to Germany are required to take the Covid-19 test and those who do not submit a negative PCR (polymerase chain reaction) test result within 48 hours prior to their arrival will not be accepted on board the flight.
Disinfection procedures approved by the international authorities are being carried out regularly on all aircraft in the SunExpress fleet. Each aircraft has the High-Efficiency Particulate Air (HEPA) filtering system that is also found in hospital operating rooms. These filters, which have a 99.9-percent success rate against all known viruses including the coronavirus, refresh the air every three minutes from top to bottom during the flight.
