Safe domestic flying protocol
The Australian aviation industry has developed a Domestic Passenger Journey Protocol to provide clear and consistent guidance regarding risk-minimisation principles and processes in domestic airports and on aircraft for domestic passenger travel.
This Protocol will provide guidance for industry members and confidence to the travelling public as domestic air travel increases with the reduction in COVID-19 related restrictions on travel.
The measures set out in the Protocol are intended to minimise the risk of transmission of COVID-19 for domestic airline passengers and workers. They were informed by health advice provided by Australian authorities, as well as guidance promulgated by international aviation authorities such as the International Air Transport Association (IATA) and the International Civil Aviation Organization (ICAO).
The Protocol has been considered and is supported by the Australian Health Protection Principal Committee, which is made up of state and territory Chief Health Officers and chaired by the Australian Government’s Chief Medical Officer.
