Covid-19: gradual resumption of flights in a high-security envionment

Updated on 13/05/2020 at 3.00 pm.

 

Gradual resumption of flights

After a month and a half of interruption of most of its activity, Montpellier Méditerranée Airport (AMM) saw the symbolic but concrete resumption of its commercial flights on Monday 11 May. This reopening will continue to be very gradual with, for the time being, the Montpellier hub providing two weekly rotations to and from Paris-Charles de Gaulle (Mondays and Fridays, arrivals at 3.35 pm and departures at 4.20 pm). These rotations, operated by Air France, should increase significantly from June onwards. More information at www.airfrance.fr.

“We are in constant dialogue with the 16 airlines present in Montpellier," explains Emmanuel Brehmer, Chairman of the AMM Management Board. They are all, of course, closely monitoring the development of the health crisis and all the parameters that determine whether or not each air route can be opened. The opening or reopening of the fifty or so routes initially planned for this spring 2020 will therefore be carried out on a case-by-case basis in the days and weeks to come".

For the time being, subject to possible updates linked to the overall health environment, the ramp-up will be carried out in phases. Chalair announces the resumption of its service to and from Bordeaux on 15 June. "As for Transavia, which was due to open its Montpellier base at the beginning of April, the low-cost subsidiary of the Air France-KLM group is not questioning the principle," Emmanuel Brehmer explained. “As with all airlines, the openings will be staggered in line with future developments. The very good level of bookings recorded just before the Covid-19 crisis showed the strong potential of Montpellier and its region".

Emmanuel Brehmer: "The airport was safe and we have made it even safer."

This progressive recovery scheme is being carried out in an ultra-secure sanitary environment. “The aviation world is used to strict compliance with safety and security standards," says Emmanuel Brehmer. “Like all our partners, we have taken advantage of these weeks of lockdown to offer optimal protection to our passengers, employees, partners and subcontractors. The airport was safe, we have made it even safer".

Safety measures and flight schedule details are updated in real time on the airport's website as well as on those of the airlines.

 

For optimum safety

In close collaboration with the airlines (which require the wearing of masks when boarding), Montpellier-Méditerranée Airport has methodically followed the recommendations of the French Public Health Authorities. In addition to visual messages on site, there are reminders of the well-known barrier gestures through repeated sound messages. The main means used are as follows:
> Boarding and check-in desks as well as all counters are now equipped with plexiglass walls.
> The passenger route is marked out in order to visualize the rules of social distancing (ground markings at check-in and in the Post Screening area, closure of seats in the boarding lounge, etc.).
> Limitation to one person per 4m² (with armed surveillance of Hall 2 if necessary)
> Reinforcement of disinfection measures and use of specific virucidal products
> Installation of automatic hydroalcoholic gel dispensers at 15 strategic points in the airport.
> Equipment for all exposed personnel (masks, gloves as well as overalls for firefighters)
> Reinforcement of the control of thermal air treatment equipment, increase of air renewal flows and shutdown of air conditioning.
> Pre-checking for the presence of legionella in hot water installations
> Purging of the cold-water system
> Allocation of 2 pre-boarding rooms for 1 single flight in order to guarantee the rules of social distancing
