Employees Air, the largest airline in the country, said the company did not do enough to inform customers and staff of their exposure to the infected passenger Covid-19.

And for more flight attendants tested positive for coronavirus, there is a growing concern in the ranks of companies that the risk for flight attendants is higher than previously recognized.

at least one occasion, Air Canada passengers infected deliberate. After being advised by the health authorities of the situation, the company’s policy is to – and tell the staff who work in them

The stewardess told that privacy laws prevented Air Canada of informing all the passengers onboard the flight, according to. internal communication seen by the Guardian.

“In Canada, it is not the airline but the Public Health Agency of Canada contact passengers,” Air Canada told the Guardian. “This is a public process clearly delineated. It is not the role of the airline. “

The company also stressed that it is to deny boarding to any passenger showing symptoms of potentially dangerous.

Meanwhile, WestJet, Canada major competitors of the company, flight number and seat assignment Covid 19 passengers were infected in the last few days, in an effort to prevent further spread of the virus.

Covid-19 has sent the airline industry as more jurisdictions hold travel restrictions. International Air Transport Association said airlines could lose at least $ 113bn this year because of a virus. Some airlines have laid off large numbers of workers, and more layoffs are expected.

In an attempt to quell the panic travelers and to reduce financial losses, some airlines have tried to mitigate the crisis by detailing their cleaning procedure prevention in email newsletters, install a thermal imaging camera at the airport gate and turn off certain facilities Many flights others have laid off thousands of workers, and more layoffs are expected.

While the threat of a coronavirus has been widely reported over the past few months, several staff Air Canada said it has little to do to prepare for what the World Health Organization last week

Employees, speaking on condition of anonymity, said their concerns emerged in the early outbreak of coronavirus.

Working in conjunction with the International Air Transport Association, the WHO should follow as they fight against coronavirus. Among the various requirements for extensive cleaning and disinfection of aircraft, cabin crew are expected to have the appropriate personal protective equipment.

But Wesley Lesosky, representing Air Canada employees in the Canadian public workers union (CUPE) to the trustee that the staff lack proper gloves, masks, face shields and disinfectant materials while on the job. “Flight attendants are in contact with a lot of things,” he said. “And they need adequate protection.”

One of the employees said that the airline did more cleaning on some flights – “but not every flight, because they say the public. Many stations do not have the manpower. They simply would not have 30 different people waiting to come and men every single flight. “

The employee said that at some airports, extra cleaning done only upon request, a charge also made by commentators on the Facebook group personally used by flight attendants and seen by the Guardian. Employees said the airline had not planned for a longer turnaround time between landing and takeoff to allow deep cleaning-sufficient.

Frustrations on sanitation schedule appears in the middle that shows the coronavirus that is much more resilient than previously thought.

Air Canada denied the staff did not have access to the right equipment and stated that he used the “hospital-grade disinfectant” for routine surface cleaning and sanitation.

Both on the website and in written answers to the Guardian, Air Canada says all aircraft received sanitation for frequently touched areas – including wc, ships and tray tables – at the end of the trip, before starting a new leg. The aircraft was parked overnight receive full sanitation, including a focus on hard surfaces.

In recent days, the Canadian government has been calledanyone entering from state to self-isolate for two weeks.

But Air Canada senior management told the cabin crew that they were released, the memo intenal March 13th. The company said staff were “trained and ready for you to protect, spend less time [sic] in the countries visited and have access to and use of protective measures on board including hand sanitizers, masks and gloves when and appropriate”.

in the internal chatter that earlier on February 23, the company’s chief medical officer, Dr Jim Chung, said: “In general, the cabin crew are not considered at risk for transmission.”

comment on a private Facebook group advised the staff who are growing increasingly frustrated.

“We are at the highest risk of illness in those planes,” wrote one employee. “Anyone who thinks differently to walk a mile in our shoes.”

Other flight attendants say they reject what they call “dangerous work” for the first time in their long careers with the company. Others in the group express surprise at what they describe as the failure to recognize risk management.

Air Canada is one of the 20 largest airlines in the world. Globally, more than 30,000 employees.

Over the weekend, a Canadian Air Canada flight attendants became of Covid-19, according to local news in Hawaii. Employees initially infected in Germany. Three employees, based out of Calgary, has also tested positive.
