COVID-19 Travel Guidelines

We have been working continuously on implementing sanitation protocols and intensified preventive measures so you can rest assured of everyone’s safety and health when you’re ready to fly. As we prepare to take to the skies again, here are some guidelines and reminders to ensure our well-being. Let’s all work together so #EveryJuanWillFlyAgain.


Crew RapidTest

Rapid testing before flights

CEB pilots and cabin crew will undergo rapid antibody tests before their assigned flights. Operating crew cleared for flights will wear personal protective equipment.

Aircraft Disinfect

Extensive aircraft disinfection

All CEB aircraft will undergo extensive daily disinfection, which includes the misting of the cabin using a disinfectant approved for Airbus jets that is effective in eradicating viruses including the Novel Coronavirus. This process is aligned with International Air Transport Association guidelines, and ensures that all surfaces (such as passenger seats, overhead bins and cargo compartments) are covered and sanitized. Lavatories will be sanitized every 30 minutes.

Aircraft HEPAFilters

Hospital-grade HEPA filters in Airbus aircraft

Air inside the cabin is changed every three (3) minutes, using High Efficiency Particulate Air (HEPA) filters installed in our Airbus aircraft. HEPA filters can filter out viruses with a 99.99% efficiency, similar to what is used in hospital operating rooms.
