Skytrax COVID-19 Airline Safety Ratings evaluate airport and onboard standards, to determine how effectively the airline’s COVID-19 enhanced systems and procedures are performing. The Safety Certification is made after detailed investigation and analysis of the effectiveness and consistency of measures put in place by airlines to ensure that their COVID-19 safety and hygiene measures are meeting the highest standards, and providing enhanced safety to customers and staff.
The COVID-19 Airline Safety Ratings are published when inspections, testing and evaluations are completed, and are being progressively rolled out on the planned phase shown below, subject to international travel restrictions being eased in many regions. The Ratings focus totally on the COVID-19 cleanliness, hygiene and safety procedures, and we do not evaluate any temporary service changes due to COVID-19 (eg. closed lounges, cuts in onboard catering etc).
