Air travel and social distancing – post COVID-19

Yes, I know how ‘bored in the house and in the house bored’ you are. You might have finished binge-watching all your favourite tv series, including the ones you never even thought of watching. Quarantine has not been easy on us, and I know exactly how you are feeling right now. You may have spoken to all the blokes and girls in social media out of boredom, and you might have done challenges which you never dreamt of, trust me I’m one of them. Now you might be saying you want to travel to your favourite beach destination or wherever, after the pandemic ends, but did you ever think about what will it be to fly along with social distancing?

But, your getaway isn’t a loss of course when you fly with Travel Center! I know we are all getting cold feet since the outbreak has been hitting on our chances of travelling, but that doesn’t mean we should give up our travel dreams. Because giving up is not what heroes do, right?

The Aviation Industry and our influence

The aviation trade has never handled such a challenge for ages, as stated by the International Air Travel Association (IATA). Consequently, it doesn’t mean that you can’t travel to your favourite destination.

If anything goes wrong in your destination, you still don’t have to worry because we are ATOL and ABTA protected, and full refunds are guaranteed.

Social distancing

Specialists have recommended that whenever lockdowns throughout the world are raised, social distancing should be a pivotal factor to continue. It is also likely that some nations might only let in travellers who can assure that they do not have coronavirus. 

Social distancing with Emirates

In this week, Emirates became the premier airline to inaugurate pre-flight testing for COVID-19, assigning travellers with ‘negative’ records before service from Dubai to Tunisia on last Wednesday. Dubai’s state-owned flag carrier says it plans to work out the service to more routes in the purpose it can kick-start a recovery of global aviation. Furthermore, the airline has produced face masks compulsory in both the airport and on-board, and they have also prevented having hand luggage from the cabin; in-flight magazines are similarly removed from the cabins, along with reduced meal options. If you thought air travel was a waste of time before, you are going to be in for a shock for what’s coming up in future.

Some airlines also stated that they might obstruct the middle seats on its flights to maintain healthy social distancing while flights return. Meanwhile, this will mean 62 fewer seats will be available on flights available on every plane (example- 124 seats from a 186-seat Airbus A320).

Why you shouldn’t cancel your booking

As you know it, the main inference is cheaper flight fares. If you book your holiday now, you will have flight fares under the same price radar costing you none in the future. Oh, what about accommodation? Even top-class hotels have similarly lower prices where you can’t even dream of a stay in a particular hotel for that specific amount. These consequences prove that not cancelling a booking also allows higher value on hotels is true. Don’t even think of cancelling a holiday and ruining your travel plans, just reschedule.

So, looking on to the brighter side of the picture, why not save the date for later and enjoy it? Good things come to those who wait, and I have never seen such a fruitful quote even when it comes to relationships(sigh). Anyways, if you are ready to shift your holiday date, we will be with you until you go and return too. Travelling is an art; not every person has the privilege to travel. So, make use of the best, and Travel Center will do the rest!
