Mozambique gives guidelines for air travel

The Mozambican civil aviation authorities say only airlines from six countries have agreed to resume operations since the reopening of the country’s airspace this month.

The National Civil Aviation Institute said the airlines were from Portugal, Turkey, Qatar, Ethiopia, Kenya and South Africa.

The institute said countries planning to restart their flights should express interest in the Mozambican diplomatic missions of their respective countries.

The resumption of regular passenger and cargo flights is authorised based on the principal of reciprocity and only two weekly flights are allowed.

International passengers must have proof that they tested negative for Covid-19 in the last 72 hours, according to guidance by the institute issued this week.

The airlines are required to ensure preventive measures are observed including the wearing of masks, social distancing of at least 1.5 metres, and the planes must carry universal precautionary kits.

The airline crew should also undergo state-supervised mandatory quarantine for up to 24 hours.

The planes, passengers and cargo must be disinfected before disembarking, the guidelines say.
