Qatar Airways has strengthened its onboard PPE requirements for passengers and crew, with passengers now required to wear a face shield for the duration of their flight – in addition to a face covering.
Shields will be provided, and will be available in adult and children’s sizes.
Passengers will also be given complimentary "protective kits" containing a surgical face mask, which must be worn beneath the shield, as well as gloves and hand sanitiser.
Business class passengers will be offered an additional 75ml tube of sanitising gel.
Crew will also have to wear a new protective gown over their uniforms, as well as safety glasses, gloves and a face mask.
