Air France receives 5-star COVID-19 airline safety rating from Skytrax


Air France has received a 5-star COVID-19 airline safety rating from Skytrax.

Air France is the first major European airline to receive this award, which is an improvement on the 4-star rating it received in January 2021.

The 5-star rating is the highest an airline can receive in this global benchmark for certifying COVID-19 air travel health and safety standards.

Among the measures taken by Air France, the rating agency evaluated the cleaning and disinfection procedures at the airport and on board aircraft, recycling of the cabin air, special signage and floor markings to ensure physical distancing, the compulsory wearing of masks, provision of hand sanitizer and an adapted service in the Air France lounges and on board aircraft.

Following a comprehensive audit of those measures carried out in June 2021, Skytrax confirmed the strict application of procedures for cleaning and disinfecting frequently touched surfaces at the airport and on board the company’s aircraft.

“We are proud to obtain this 5-star rating which once again recognizes the immense efforts made by Air France teams on a daily basis to guarantee the implementation of our Air France Protect program,” said Fabien Pelous, SVP Air France Customer Experience. “It is also an additional incentive to pursue our efforts to ensure our customers travel with complete peace of mind.”
