IATA releases self-assesment health checklist

The International Air Transport Association (IATA) has released an airline self-assessment health checklist earlier to support the International Civil Aviation Organization’s (ICAO) Take-off: Guidance for Air Travel through the COVID-19 public health crisis.

The  guidance is the global standard framework of risk-based temporary measures for governments and the air transport value chain for safe operations during the COVID-19 crisis.

“Safety is always the number one priority for air transport. And the challenges of COVID-19 have added a new dimension to our efforts. Developed with input from industry, public health authorities and governments, ICAO’s Take-off guidance is the global standard for safe operations. IATA’s self-assessment checklist is a practical implementation guide to help airlines comply,” said Alexandre de Juniac, Director General and CEO, IATA. 

“A harmonised approach to health is key not only to the recovery of civil aviation but also to ‘building back better,’ which is crucially important to ensuring the future resilience of the aviation network. IATA’s health checklist for airlines will be of importance in terms of providing momentum for the implementation of the ICAO Council Aviation Recovery Task Force (CART) recommendations, of which harmonization and resilience are the guiding principles,’’ said Salvatore Sciacchitano, Council President, ICAO.

The IATA Health Safety Checklist for Airline Operators provides the standards and recommended practices (IHSARPs), associated guidance material and other supporting information necessary for an operator to self-assess. Sections cover:

Pre-arrival notification;
Embarkation and Disembarkation;
Aircraft Cleaning;
Onboard Air Quality;
In-flight Operations;
Flight and Cabin Crew – General;
Crew Layover;
Airport Facilities.
