Wingly's advice for flying in the safest possible conditions

Following recent government updates and with the lifting of lockdown gradually approaching, a lift of the ban on flight-sharing has now been confirmed for the 4th of July 2020. However, in order to limit the spread of the virus as much as possible, we need cooperation from all of our pilots and passengers. Therefore, we have created a set of guidelines to ensure that flying resumes in the safest way possible.

When flying with strangers post-coronavirus, it is of paramount importance that you stick to these guidelines. After all, it’s been so long since we were last in the air, we wouldn’t want to jeopardise the long-awaited return!

For flights between Wingly pilots and passengers, we have put the following precautions in place in order to reduce and limit the potential of any hazard occurring:

IMPORTANT REGULATIONS

If you have been diagnosed with COVID-19 at any time during the 14 days prior to your flight you are not permitted to fly.

If you have had COVID-19 symptoms (fever, newly developed cough, loss of taste or smell, shortness of breath) at any time during the 8 days prior to your flight you are not permitted to fly.

If you have been in close contact with someone who has COVID-19 (face-to-face contact within 1 meter for more than 15 minutes or direct physical contact) in the 14 days prior to your flight you are not permitted to fly.

No ‘vulnerable’ pilot or passenger on the “at-risk list” are permitted on a Wingly flight until further measures indicate otherwise.

To minimise the risk, all pilots and passengers must wear their own PPE (mask/gloves) and are responsible for its effectiveness. Pilots must provide antibacterial wipes in each aircraft for an initial period.

Communication at a local level will be key to helping ensure everyone understands what local measures are in place and any new procedures to be followed.

Remember that protecting yourself also means protecting others around you. Hygiene remains a priority, which is why simple measures such as washing hands and avoiding contact with people at risk still remain very effective

If you have any symptoms, be sure to contact your healthcare practitioner for information. Wear a mask and gloves and isolate yourself to limit the spread of the virus.

To all of our community, stay cautious and vigilant!

THE FINAL AND MOST IMPORTANT THING TO REMEMBER

Enjoy the long-awaited return to flying!

We're really happy that our passengers will be able to go flying again, but your safety is always our priority, which is why we assembled this short checklist of gentle reminders.

The Wingly team wishes you a safe return to flying and we look forward to seeing you in the skies soon!
