Travelling by Air during covid

Hii guys,

I am from India...By God's grace and with the help of my friends and family I completed 15 years of transplant successfully. Last one year had been stressful due to covid and lockdown. 

I need one advise from you guys. I want to travel by air to meet my parents as I have not met them since last 1 year. Is it advisable to travel by air? Is it completely safe, if all precautions are taken? It will be only a 3 hour flight

I am little confused on this as one of my transplant physician allowed me to travel with all precautions and one has strictly told me not to travel. 

I am missing my parents..So, I need your all valuable suggestions. Thanks

  • I wouldn't do it unless it was a real emergency - at least not on an aircraft.

    If you have your ticket in advance and can get through any security with the distance requirements strictly enforced, what will you do on the aircraft itself?  Even with the best cabin air purification like a hospital operating room would not help is an infected person was sitting near to you.

    If available I would think buying a cabin on a train would be much safer.

  • It is a proven fact that airline air is safe, however measures should be taken like pre-check-in to help avoid standing in crowed lines in crowded airports. Major airlines are striving to limit exposure and will offer tips to aid in safety. Wear a mask, carry hand sanitizer and social distance!
