SINGAPORE – Measures such as air filtering and distancing between passengers are making air travel safer but passengers should still take precautions when flying to avoid catching Covid-19.
Infectious diseases experts noted that getting infected from someone else on board cannot be completely eliminated.
Their comments come after findings from the International Air Transport Association (Iata) this month stated that the risk of Covid-19 transmission on board planes appears to be “very low” and that infection figures “are extremely reassuring”.
