According to the Chief Operating Officer of the airline, Mrs Aanu Benson, “Overland Airways assures our esteemed customers of pleasures of flying as we are implementing safety and health protocols advised by health and regulatory authorities. These protocols include but are not limited to taking of passengers’ temperature readings, ensuring the wearing of face masks and other protective equipment by passengers and staff on board our aircraft, maintenance of physical distance at the check-in and boarding lines and regular disinfection of our aircraft. It will be clean crew, clean aircraft and clean passengers with safety as priority.”
