Earlier this year DC Aviation introduced a pioneering programme of rapid Covid-19 pre-flight virus testing for all crew and flight support personnel. The measure was introduced to ensure that passengers have the knowledge that they can travel safely with DC Aviation. However, with travel restrictions and requirements changing on a weekly basis, DC Aviation has taken the strategy a step further by adding rapid testing for all flights, in any country, at any time. This means that no matter where the aircraft and crew are, and how many stops are made, the passengers are secure in the knowledge that they are flying with zero risk of exposure to the virus.

DC Aviation closely monitor and adapt to the travel regulations of each individual country allowing passengers to travel seamlessly between countries with differing restrictions and requirements. A key part of this pioneering strategy is that passengers safety is top priority at all times with gloves, masks and hand disinfectants being mandatory and available at every stage of the flight, from arrival to disembarkation. All DC Aviation aircraft undergo an intensified cleaning and disinfection process after each flight.

Commenting on the introduction of the Covid-19 test programme, Michael Kuhn, CEO of DC Aviation, said: "When we launched the rapid testing programme we were very pleased at the response from passengers, however as passenger numbers have increased, the demand for flights to and from a greater variety of countries has also risen. This has meant that we have had to deal with a larger and more varied number of restrictions and regulations. Therefore, we have introduced the rapid testing programme for any flight, from any departure point. The health and safety of our passengers and crew is of paramount importance and in order to maintain our standards we further refined the testing programme to ensure it is available for every flight .Yet again DC Aviation is proud to deliver the highest safety standards for our passengers and crews".
