Chinese flight attendants required to wear diapers onboard flights.

The civil Aviation Administration of China (CAAC) has suggested that flight attendants in China may be required to wear diapers on board when they travel to high risk areas.

The CAAC released this new guideline on November 25 seeking to caution the industry from the ongoing pandemic in a 38-page document recommending flight attendants to wear “medical masks, double-layer disposable medical gloves, goggles, disposable hats, disposable protective clothing, and disposable shoe covers” when flying to high-risk areas.

“It is recommended that cabin crew members wear disposable diapers and avoid using the lavatories barring special circumstances to avoid infection risks,” the manual says.

The 38-page list of guidelines from the Civil Aviation Administration of China apply for charter flights to and from countries and regions where infections exceed 500 in every one million people.

The document further adviced flight attendants to avoid using the airplane lavatories since there have been incidents in the past of passengers contracting Covid-19 while aboard.

The guidelines also advise dividing the cabin into “clean area, buffer zone, passenger sitting area and quarantine area,” separated by disposable curtains. An emergency quarantine area should be set up in the last three rows.

The early onset of the pandemic in Wuhan badly hit the Chinese aviation sector, but the country has bounced back after quashing the outbreak and then successfully preventing it re-emerging.

By September, the number of domestic Chinese flights had topped 2019 levels, official data showed, as passenger numbers indicated domestic flying was nearing a full recovery.

The pandemic has adversly affected the airline industry while passenger numbers are expected to plummet to 1.8 billion which is the same the industry had in 2003.

Airlines have assured authorities that it is safe to fly during the pandemic, partly thanks to the hospital-grade air filters on planes making it safe to fly without risk of contracting the virus.
