MedAire, the world’s leading provider of medical, travel and safety services for the aviation industry is hosting an educational pop-up session on the Zika virus. Dr. Michael Braida, MedAire Medical Director for Central Europe, will speak about the spread of the Zika virus and its impact on security protocols, regulations and disinsection. The pop-up session will be on Wednesday, 25 May at 10:00 in the Inspiration Zone at EBACE.

“Many in the aviation industry are concerned about the implications of the Zika virus to passengers and crewmembers,” said Dr. Braida. “During the session we will discuss the latest information around Zika transmission, what we know about its possible evolution and preventive measures to help minimize exposure.” There is no vaccine to prevent contracting the Zika virus, therefore preventing mosquito bites should be a traveller’s top priority.

The best way for travelers to protect themselves is through proper and simple precautions. For more than 30 years MedAire has been the global leader in aviation-specific travel risk mitigation solutions to keep owners, operators and crew safe while travelling. MedAire Membership includes 24/7/365 access to medical, security and logistics teams, as well as pre-trip advice to help travellers understand and mitigate risks. To learn more about travel risk mitigation solutions, visit MedAire at Booth V063 at EBACE in Geneva, May 24-26.
