As the world slowly opens to international travel, Turkish Airlines is all set to serve guests with its new airbus.
Every year, thousands of people flock to different parts of the world for all sorts of reasons, be it personal or professional. This year should be no different, but the pandemic restricted and in most cases, canceled every scheduled trip indefinitely. With the unpredictable spread of COVID-19, many had to adjust their plans or to cancel these completely. However, now that we are slowly seeing a possible cure to the novel coronavirus, many are cautiously starting to travel as well. Thus, airlines like Turkish Airlines have been preparing for this gradual change. In fact, they recently launched their Airbus A350 in Manila, ready to connect travelers from the Philippines to Istanbul flights.
Flying with ease
Now that we are allowed to travel both locally and internationally, it almost seems like the world has returned to normal. If you are one to fly aboard Airbus A350, you can be assured to feel the safest and uttermost comfort in short and long-haul flights. The latest in-flight entertainment systems and the in-flight WiFi allows you to remain connected with your loved ones. For work trips, you can easily resume working on projects or even attend a Zoom meeting without interruption.
The state-of-the-art features of the Airbus A350 create a serene and relaxed atmosphere as you fly to your destination. With the new Aurora business class seats in a 1-2-1 configuration and the plane’s double corridor, you easily have proper access to the aisles. The wide seats, optimal cabin pressure, and high ceiling stretch the capacity for a spacious and pleasant flight.
Safety in the sky
The world may be close to developing a cure for COVID-19, but we are not yet at the point of having the pandemic in our complete control. So, with flying guests, Turkish Airlines ensure the best air quality across their planes, especially in the Airbus A350. The plane uses HEPA filters that remove 99.97% of harmful particles in the air, renewing the air every two to three minutes. A similar thorough cleaning goes with each flight—the aircraft team meticulously cleans contact points and disinfects the entire plane after every flight.
Other changes you have to look out for are the new standards in offering meals onboard. You can now have packaged and single-use products. However, these will only be available for flights of more than two hours. For shorter flights, only bottled water will be offered. Beyond the catering services, the entire aircraft team dons face masks and protective gear, and so guests must wear masks the entire time as well.
These policies may seem daunting especially to first-time travelers after a long time. Yet all these ensure limited exposure to COVID-19, protecting both yourself and your fellow travelers.
