COVID-19 Update - March 16, 2020
It is important that during these times of change we respond quickly while ensuring we continue to serve our valued customers safely and reliably.
While the Public Health Agency of Canada (PHAC) has assessed the public health risk associated with COVID-19 as low for the general population in Canada, we would like to share with you some of the proactive steps Perimeter Aviation has implemented to ensure that we are emphasizing the health and safety of our customers.
Passengers intending to travel on scheduled flights are subject to screening until further notice. Perimeter will not transport a confirmed or suspected case of COVID-19 on a scheduled flight. Thank you for your understanding.
Protecting our customers from the risk of infection by communicable diseases has always been part of our safety protocols. Perimeter Aviation rigorously adheres to guidance from all relevant health authorities and follows best demonstrated practices in the prevention and handling of communicable diseases in the air travel industry.
As such Perimeter Aviation has implemented additional sanitation procedures for our aircraft and public areas to ensure they meet or exceed all guidelines provided by PHAC. Surfaces such as airport counter, aircraft seats, tray tables, armrests, lavatories, etc. are thoroughly wiped down and treated with a high-grade disinfectant similar to those used in health care facilities. As per PHAC guidelines and other resources, coronaviruses do not survive on soft materials such as head rests, seat covers and carpets.
On board our aircraft and at our check-in counters, Perimeter Aviation will be maintaining supplies of hand sanitizers and disinfectant wipes. We have also implemented changes to our inflight service offerings including the removal of all non-essential reading material from our seatback pockets.
Perimeter Aviation is committed to doing all we can to provide the safest transportation possible in all aspects of our operation. We will continue monitoring recommendations from the Public Health Agency of Canada and will take additional action as required.
