The company has taken several measures to ensure the safety of the flight crew and passengers.
Flights will be completed using a larger aircraft and available seating will be reduced to 40% to allow for distancing, all ground and flight crew will have their temperature checked upon arriving and departing the workplace, passengers will be provided with gloves and a mask, which they will be required to wear during the entire flight, and stringent cleaning and sanitization measures will continue to be followed.
“Over the past 38 years, Harbour Air has become a vital transportation link to coastal British Columbia. We know that ‘returning to operations’ is not a ‘return to normal,'” said Harbour Air.
“As we begin to look towards the future, we are working hard to ensure that we are providing the safe, essential travel services you’ve come to expect from Harbour Air.”
