When will flights to France resume?

IATA President Alexandre de Juniac said: “Normally, if the governments we are discussing with follow our recommendations, people should be able to travel to France from June, then to Europe from July to August, with low traffic and a little more limited number of destinations. “

From July, the association would like to reopen the continental market in Europe, North America and Asia. After this second phase, in the last quarter of the year, intercontinental flights could start again.

IATA will present its plan in late May and, if approved by governments, flights will resume on that time.

However, passengers will have to undergo a health screening process.

De Juniac recommends passengers to present a health declaration attesting that they are in good health upon arrival at the airport, therefore to complete a temperature check at the terminal entrance and to be obliged to wear a mask both inside the terminal of the airport than on the plane. Passengers may also be asked to travel with only one hand baggage to avoid congestion when boarding.

De Juniac said: “But if airlines are forced to deactivate and not use the seat of the intermediate plane, this means that they will not fly or raise prices by at least 50%.”

He also added that the risk of contamination is “minimal” on board due to air filtration and the fact that passengers are seated one behind the other and therefore separated.
