If you are thinking of traveling to Mexico, it is important to know more about the new safety and hygiene measures that have been implemented to ensure the well-being of travelers.
The airports of Mexico reported that due to the contingency of COVID-19, if you will travel soon, you must fill out a Questionnaire for Identifying Risk Factors in Travelers.
The document was developed by the AFAC (Federal Civil Aviation Agency), the Secretaría de Salud (Ministry of Health), the MEDPREV (Direccion General de Proteccion y Medicina Preventiva en el Transporte), and the SCT (Secretaria de Comunicaciones y Transportes). In order to safeguard the health and safety of passengers who share the same flight.
What are the new measures for Mexico's airports?
The WTTC (World Travel and Tourism Council) recommends that travelers check in online, and thus avoid the crowding of people in the check-in desks of each airline.
Airports have special self check-in kiosks in which you can complete the check-in process, before approaching the airline module to check luggage.
After completing the documentation, at the airline counter they will recommend that you complete the Identification Questionnaire of risk factors in travelers at once; throughout the airport you will find several signs with a QR code that directs you to the questionnaire.
It is important to note that without checking in, the questionnaire cannot be answered.
What is in the questionnaire?
The first thing is to fill in the fields with the information about the flight to board, that is why it is necessary to already have the check in done, because the questionnaire asks about the airline, flight number and seat No. you will occupy.
Followed by providing information regarding our flight, you are asked to fill in the fields with personal data, such as full name, telephone and email.
The important part of the questionnaire
The next part of the questionnaire is based on detailing whether a trip has been made in the last 14 days, if so, report the places that were visited, as well as the exact date.
Inform if you have been in direct contact with someone with COVID-19, and finally, detail if you suffer any of the following symptoms; temperature of 38 °C (100.4°F) or more, coughing and / or sneezing, headache or any acute health problem, and if you suffer from respiratory distress.
At the end of the questionnaire, each passenger will be assigned a code that must be shown when going to the boarding hall, and when boarding the plane if the airline requests it.
Each airline has its own safety and hygiene protocols, and all must record the temperature of each passenger and give antibacterial gel at the time of boarding.
