Fresh air in every 4 minutes

AirExplore complies with all regulations and recommendations issued by the European Aviation Safety Agency (EASA) as well as regulations issued by Public Health Office of the Slovak Republic and the Department of Chief Hygienist of the Ministry of Transport. The airline monitors the health of its crew, which are equipped with the necessary protective facilities and the aircrafts are disinfected after each flight or locally and during the flight.

 For the same reasons food and beverages are delimited as well as the movement of passengers on the board. Boarding is allowed only with covered mouth and nose expect children under 3 years and people living with ASD (autism). Hand disinfecting will also be available directly on board. The process of boarding is modified to minimize the accumulation of passengers.

 Aircraft systems are also equipped with HEPA filters, which means that the air in the cabin changes every 4 minutes. The risk of infection is therefore lower than, for example, on a 13-hour train journey.
