All PAL cabin crew will be required to wear full personal protective equipment (PPE) while onboard. Moreover, prior to duty, they will undergo medical evaluation. It also said its aircraft are equipped with advanced cabin air systems that continuously infuse fresh air across the cabin.
“The onboard air creates a controlled and cleaner environment comparable to hospital operating rooms that is safer than most enclosed public spaces,” PAL said.
