Due to the nature of close proximity in airports and aircraft, there is a possible higher risk of transmission. You can reduce the risk of transmission by wearing face masks and regularly cleaning your hands.

This comes down to each individual airline. The CDC strongly advises the use of face masks on planes. If you are flying with Fiji Airways, you will be required to wear a face mask for the duration of your flight. You should pack at least 2 masks per person, per flight.

The World Health Organization state that there is currently no evidence that people can catch COVID-19 from food. Fiji Airways are following strict cleaning measures to minimize and prevent the spread of Covid-19.

In your hand luggage, pack a minimum of 2 face masks per person per flight, disinfectant wipes and a small bottle of hand santizer (no larger than 100ml).

With all adults wearing masks and airlines following strict hygiene protocols, you are at low risk of infection. If you suspect you or anyone on the flight is unwell, please let a member of the cabin crew know. They will advise you on what to do.
