COVID-19: AirAsia trials PPE suits for cabin crew

By Ainslee Asokan

27 Apr 2020 10:07PM (Updated: 27 Apr 2020 11:02PM) SINGAPORE: Low-cost carrier AirAsia has trialled the use of personal protective equipment (PPE) suits for its cabin crew on its Philippine subsidiary, the airline told CNA on Monday (Apr 27).

“It was first used in a recent recovery flight and a further assessment of the design is under way,” AirAsia said.

On Monday, AirAsia’s chief safety officer Ling Liong Tien said that some of the measures the airline has adopted for repatriation and humanitarian flights include the use of PPE by cabin crew.

As some domestic flights prepare to resume, cabin crew will also adopt similar additional measures, according to Captain Ling.

"While you are in the aircraft, you’ll be happy to know that all our cabin crew will be wearing protective equipment including masks and gloves," he said on AirAsia's website.

Other measures AirAsia will adopt as flights resume, according to Captain Ling, include having travelers wear their own masks before, during and after the flight - as well as at check-in counters and baggage carousels.

“Guests without a mask will be denied boarding,” he said.

Filipino fashion designer Puey Quinones posted images of AirAsia’s PPE suits on his Instagram account last Friday, adding a caption which said they were designed by him.

Several pictures showed the red and white full-length suit, in line with AirAsia’s colours, which include a protective face shield.

When queried, AirAsia did not confirm if these were indeed the designs of its PPE.

There will always be some risk. Great idea.
