The European Union Aviation Safety Agency (EASA) has recommended that countries not require testing for coronavirus and quarantine from those who have been ill with COVID-19 or have been fully vaccinated in the past six months.
These recommendations are contained in the updated document COVID-19 Aviation Health Safety Protocol dated June 17, 2021, avianews reports.
The document also states that if vaccinated travelers or persons with a history of infection arrive from high-risk countries (with a high incidence of COVID-19), then they can be tested by rapid antigen testing before departure or after arrival. And vaccination certificates can be checked once, before departure, so that queues do not form.
At airports, it is mandatory to wear masks and keep a distance, since vaccination does not 100% protect against disease, and moreover, a large number of people have not yet received vaccinations. It is recommended that only passengers and workers be allowed into the terminals.
Airports should take measures to avoid crowding and provide more transport, and airlines should provide as much distance as possible when seat assignment if the flight is not fully occupied.
Context. Earlier, reported that Ukraine may allow air passengers who have had COVID-19 and have antibodies not to be tested for coronavirus upon arrival.
