When the airports across the region reopen and Caribbean Airlines returns to the friendly skies, its passengers will be required to wear face masks throughout the duration of the flight.
In a statement this afternoon, Caribbean Airline said it is committed to
protecting the safety and well-being of its customers and employees in response to the COVID-19 pandemic and therefore it is requiring all customers to wear a face mask/covering throughout their entire journey at all Caribbean Airlines touch-points from check-in at the airport, departure gate areas, jet-bridges, and on-board the aircraft for the duration of the flight.
The company has made it clear that the requirement is compulsory and any refusal to comply, shall result in customers being denied boarding by the airline, except in the case of children under the age of 2 years, or adults who have a medical condition which prevents them from using a mask.
The airline also noted that any special exemptions would need to be endorsed by a medical practitioner and approved by Caribbean Airlines before travel.
Caribbean Airlines which is based in Trinidad and Tobago has only been operating special cargo flights and repatriation flights since airports in the region closed back in March.
