Flights resumed after a four-month charter outage due to the Covid-19 crisis. According to the company’s representative, there were a total of 290 passengers on the flights performed today – 145 on each flight.
Security measures were strictly observed both at the airports and during the flights, and the travelers were understanding and welcoming. Tourists are informed about security measures in time before the trip.
Konstantin Palgov, the head of the Latvian branch of “Tez Tour”, informed that in the future the company will carry out charter flights to Greece according to the program – twice a week to the island of Crete and once a week to the Peloponnese.
The company claims that travelers will not be required to self-isolate or be required to take the Covid-19 test after their stay in Greece.
Palgov acknowledged that this time has been a great challenge for the company and the entire tourism industry. “However, it is nice to see smiling tourists at airports again, who have finally been waiting for the opportunity to go on their long-awaited vacation,” said the head of the Latvian branch of Tez Tour, adding that special attention is paid to security to limit the spread of Covid-19 virus.
According to airBaltic, since the resumption of flights, a number of additional security measures have been put in place to limit the spread of the virus and protect its passengers. One of the security measures is to measure the body temperature of all airBaltic passengers departing from Riga Airport.
Additional measures also include more frequent disinfection of aircraft cabins and the provision of a free basic care kit for all passengers with a face mask and disinfection wipes. Among other things, airBaltic passengers are required to wear face masks throughout the flight.
Stewardesses also wear face masks and gloves. airBaltic flight attendants have been instructed on the measures to be taken in the event that a passenger on an aircraft may be infected with Covid-19. All aircraft are equipped with the necessary preventive equipment. The airline has also made changes to flight services, replacing logs available on aircraft with disposable hygiene and menu information.
Security and control measures in airports, hotels and public transport, as well as those on municipal beaches, are designed to strengthen tourists’ confidence in a safe holiday.
However, Tez Tour warns that as the epidemiological situation changes, various travel rules and binding conditions may be changed, supplemented and repealed. Detailed information for travelers on the requirements for passengers at airports and on board aircraft is communicated before travel.
During the Covid-19 crisis, the Tez Tour also began selling sales for next season so that travelers whose choices were affected by restrictions could re-register their bookings for the foreseeable future.
The international tour operator “Tez Tour” has been working in Latvia since 2002. The company organizes trips to various countries around the world, including Italy, Austria, Spain, Andorra, Turkey, Greece and others.
