Is it safe to travel?
We recommend the critical social distancing, recommended by the World Health Organization (WHO), as the best measure to reduce transmission of the virus. It’s extremely advised to avoid any non-essential travel especially to the epidemic areas until the outbreak is under control.
What are my options to book a flight or hotel?
Travel is still an option, but it is limited. Before any booking you should check your destination entry requirements and government travel restrictions. Covid-19 regulations may limit or even band the ability of travelling or staying in hotels or other forms of accommodation for tourist purposes. You should check carefully the latest restriction of your destination before booking your tickets or hotel. In this pandemic condition, our first priority is your safety. Also, we try to offer tickets or travel solutions with the required flexibility, and free cancellation option, along with providing you updated information about the Covid-19 restrictions to mitigate your risks (without any prejudice).
What are the preferred airlines to book an Air Ticket?
Our first concern is your safety. We always book flights tickets for our valuable customers through reputable companies with a clear commitment and protocols for the end-to-end health of the passenger.
What are the new requirements for check-in and boarding in the airports?
New Covid-19 measurements are being implemented at check-in, and at the gates like health screening questions and pre-flight infrared temperature checks for customers, as well as the disinfection of frequently touched areas like check-in counters and kiosks. Therefore, the checking process may take more time in current pandemic situations and you should be in the airport in a safe time frame to avoid missing your flight.
