EgyptAir previously announced numerous health and well-being measures to protect guests and team members throughout their travels. Passengers must wear face masks from the time they enter the departure airport, throughout their flight and until they depart the destination airport. Customers will also be temperature tested at the airport and anyone with a temperature of 38º C (100.4º F) or above will be denied entry. Passengers are also required to follow social distancing guidelines throughout the airport and hand sanitizer dispensers will be available throughout the airport.

The airline is also restricting carry-on items to laptops and babies’ belongings to prevent overcrowding when queuing in the terminal or boarding aircraft and boarding will be carried out in groups of 25 guests at a time. Personal alcohol-based hand sanitizer will also be limited to 100 ml or equivalent per passenger. At the gate, guests are requested to open their own passport on the photo page and then the visa page with their mask off for identification and should then scan their boarding pass by themselves. Upon arrival at their destination, passengers will pass through thermal scanners and may be required to provide a health declaration or arrival medical form.

All EgyptAir team members have been provided with PPE kit including face masks, face shields and gloves and the carrier’s aircraft have been fitted with HEPA filters which filter out 99% or airborne particulates, including viruses. EgyptAir’s aircraft are thoroughly disinfected after each flight as soon as passengers deplane. Onboard food and beverage service will be limited to pre-packaged items and hot drinks will be temporarily unavailable. Additionally, pillows and blankets have been eliminated and one lavatory will be reserved exclusively for crew members. EgyptAir guests will also be provided with a ‘Health Tool Kit’ which includes a mask, gloves and sanitizer. As previously mentioned, all passengers must wear a face mask throughout the flight, except for children under six years of age.
