Evidence suggests that airborne transmission of SARS-CoV-2 results in a greater danger of mass infections. Passengers removing masks during mealtimes and custom checks increases the risk.
Testing passengers and crews for SARS-CoV-2 infection and/or immune protection (neutralizing antibody existence) before flights will increase the safety in the enclosed space of an airplane.
Testing passengers and crews for SARS-CoV-2 at customs after a flight will facilitate a shortening of mandatory quarantine periods.
Improving testing protocols for the air travel industry decreases viral transmissions both locally and internationally and facilitates a safe and healthy return to international travel, saving people time, money and peace of mind.
