Air India has been praised worldwide, as they are doing the Rescue job very precisely. They are flying several flights to rescue Indians from all around the countries, where the COVID-19 pandemic has been in worst stage. But now a group of pilots are declining to be a part of this rescue mission.
As per their allegations, the pilots are not well equipped with proper medical tools; they are not feeling safe at all. In the history of Air India, they are serving the Indian citizen in all kind of crisis. Even they’ve delivered relief materials during the natural disaster in middle east in 2011.
But now, this COVID-19 Pandemic has been spread rapidly globally. Crew members are reporting that there is a serious shortcoming about ensuring the safety of their life along with the passengers. In a letter by Executive Pilots Association, says, that they’ve received few Personal Protective Equipment that is not enough to protect everyone.
Also, the disinfection processes for aircraft are running in a short time that it requires. These actions are increasing the chances of viral exposure. It could lead to community transmissions of COVID-19 within the crew members, staff and passengers, precisely the mass also. All we need, the proper and adequate PPE and Long time disinfection process, said by a senior pilot.
