Nauru Airlines cabin crew are keeping Nauru safe from COVID-19

Nauru Airlines has made this announcement:


Air travel in the turbulent times of the coronavirus pandemic has presented a range of challenges but thanks to the sacrifices of Nauru Airlines Cabin Crew, Nauru has stayed safe.

Nauru Airlines Cabin Crew have continued flying through the pandemic, taking extra safety precautions to keep themselves and the island safe. These precautions include wearing face masks, using sanitizer and gloves, and undertaking mandatory home and hotel quarantines.

The overwhelming feedback from the Nauru Airlines Cabin Crew Manager was the strict processes and safety measures were challenging but necessary.

“The flying experience has changed dramatically and a lot of the ‘fun’ of flying is gone. We have to physically distance from passengers on flights and they are no longer allowed to explore other countries when they arrive,” one crew member said.

December was particularly difficult month for the team as the Australian government made it mandatory for all arriving international airline crew to isolate in hotel quarantine for 14 days.

Almost 70% of cabin crew can be in quarantine at one time and every several days they have to undertake a COVID test to ensure they are virus-free, which includes an uncomfortable but necessary nasal and mouth swab.

To support its Cabin Crew, Nauru Airlines hosts nightly Zoom sessions that provide a safe space for Cabin Crew to catch up, discuss any issues and share motivational advice.

Another crew member said despite the challenges, the Nauru Airlines Cabin Crew remained dedicated to their roles.

“We are thankful for everything our Crew do to keep themselves, their colleagues and the population of Nauru safe,” they said.

“All in all, our Cabin Crew know that the pandemic is only temporary, and they remain positive that the fun will come back to skies soon.”

Norfolk Island Airlines to end all operations

Norfolk Island Airlines issued this statement on February 26, 2018:

Norfolk Island Airlines advises that effective from the March 18, 2018 the airline is cancelling all passenger services.

Over the last 12 months the airline has endeavored to provide Norfolk Island with additional independent passenger services to Auckland and Brisbane.

The airline was the only business that came forward to try and solve the damage to the Island economy due to the loss of direct New Zealand services. The direct Auckland service proved to be unprofitable, due to increase charges applied to the route after the decision was made to commence operations, and now with the loss of the Auckland service these same increased operating costs have resulted in continued passenger operations, to and from Brisbane, not being sustainable.

The decision to cancel these passenger services has not been made lightly and has been made in the best interests of all our customers to ensure all passengers receive a full refund. Norfolk Island Airlines appreciates the effect of these cancellations on customers and will be working tirelessly over the next two weeks to ensuring all affected passengers are refunded in a timely manner.

The last Norfolk Island Airlines scheduled service will be ON346 Norfolk Island to Brisbane on the March 17, 2018.

Norfolk Island Airlines wishes to thank all of those who have supported the airline passenger services and advise that we plan to continue to support Norfolk Island through the provision of freighter Air services into the Island.
