China's civil aviation regulator has shortened the quarantine period by half for pilots and flight attendants on international flights to the Chinese mainland.
 

Pilots and other crew members will undergo a week-long central quarantine and a three-day health observation along with several nucleic acid tests after operating an inbound overseas flight, the Civil Aviation Administration of China said.
 

Moreover, pilots who have not gotten off the plane overseas are only subject to a week-long health observation after landing and can operate other international or domestic flights during the observation period.
 

The CAAC has released its updated 9th edition of the COVID-19 prevention protocol for airlines and airports. It has enhanced the prevention and control measures for inbound international flights, while optimizing the management on crew and imported cargo, a CAAC official said on Wednesday.
 

For passenger services, the protocol stipulates that only pre-packed food and bottled water can be provided on inbound international flights.
 

The in-flight ventilation must be turned to the maximum throughout the flight, while the lavatories must be cleaned and disinfected every half an hour or after being used by three passengers.
 

Newspapers or magazines will no longer be provided in the cabin, nor the blankets or pillows, unless there is a special request.
 

An additional garbage bag will be put behind each seat for passengers to dispose masks or other COVID-19 prevention equipment.
 

All imported cold-chain cargo has also been rated as high risk, while other imported products will be classified according to their origin and risk of contamination.
 

Meanwhile, the new protocol stipulates that staff working on the apron or handling low-risk cargo need not wear the hazmat suit if they had no contact with overseas travelers or crew, nor entered the cabin, lounge or toilet shared by risky groups.
 

国际航班机组隔离14+7改为7+3!

据民航局网站消息,日前,民航局修订发布了《运输航空公司、机场疫情防控技术指南(第九版)》。
 

与上一版疫情防控技术指南相比,《指南(第九版)》进一步细化常态化疫情防控措施,提级国际航班防控措施,并对机组管理、进口货物防控及国际入境航班全流程闭环管理等方面作出优化。在此前基础上,《指南(第九版)》如何做到更加科学精准防控?其优化调整是出于怎样的考虑,具体包括了哪些措施?
 

国际航班提级防控进口货物分级分区
 

国际航班的相关防控措施一直是大家关注的重点。《指南(第九版)》针对国际航班采取提级防控,具体表现在哪些方面?
 

答:为高效统筹疫情防控和经济社会发展,坚持“外防输入、内防反弹”总策略和“动态清零”总方针,最大限度降低疫情通过航空途径传播风险,《指南(第九版)》针对国际航班提级防控,主要采取了以下措施:
 

在航班分级方面,《指南(第九版)》将国际/地区入境航班均评定为高风险航班。
 

在机组人员防控方面,《指南(第九版)》提出,机组人员执行高风险航班任务前,需完成新冠病毒疫苗加强免疫接种;国际/地区入境航班的机组餐应尽量配备往返餐食,不建议在境外配餐;如需在境外配餐的,不配备冷餐冷食,上机前应对餐车外表面做好消毒;供餐前,应充分加热餐食。
 

在旅客及机上服务防控措施方面,《指南(第九版)》提出,对于国际/地区入境航班仅提供预包装食品和瓶装饮用水;科学控制机上温度,要求航空器空调系统在飞行期间调至最大新风量,确保舱内空气高效循环;加强盥洗室通风换气,盥洗室每30分钟进行一次清洁消毒(或每2-3人次使用后);机上取消报刊杂志供应,除特殊需求外不再提供毛毯、靠枕等用品;为旅客座位口袋中增配防护用品专用垃圾袋,并为安置在隔离区的有症状旅客提供必要的医用防护用品。
