AMID THE UNPRECEDENTED PANDEMIC TRIGGERED BY THE coronavirus which has gripped not only the nation, but has engulfed the world at large, it is the primary responsibility of airlines to take all possible steps to ensure to the extent they can, that the coronavirus does not infect and spread amongst the passengers flying onboard the airliners. It is also equally important for the airlines to take appropriate steps to eliminate all possibility of the aircrew, cabin crew, maintenance personnel as also all other members of the staff associated with the operation of the aircraft from being exposed to the menace of this scourge. One measure adopted by operators of airlines the world over to prevent being infected by the coronavirus, is to ensure that the aircraft are properly sanitised to prevent the coronavirus from affecting any passenger or member of the operating staff during travel by the aircraft, its maintenance or ground handling of the aircraft. In the final analysis, the responsibility with the airlines to take appropriate preventive measures against possible infection by coronavirus would lie in the domain of air safety.
