Air Niugini has gone a step further by purchasing and distributing personal hand sanitisers to over 2000 staff across its network as part of the ongoing measures against the corona virus.
A total 5,000 hand sanitisers in personalised 120mls bottles with Air Niugini branding were airlifted from Singapore to Port Moresby on Wednesday. They are now being unpacked at the airline’s commercial stores for distribution to all staff across the network both here and abroad.
One of Air Niugini’s Board Directors, Lady Aivu Tauvasa said the airline’s health and safety measures for both staff and passengers are ongoing adding that the recent step by ANG demonstrates its appreciation and concern for the staff.
“ Although, it maybe small the action by Air Niugini demonstrates that it simply cares, appreciates and values its staff.
“ It’s a small personalised bottle, something that can be easily carried and used anywhere and everywhere a staff goes. Not all organisations have done this for individual staff members and I commend Air Niugini for the initiative.” Mrs Tauvasa said
Apart from providing personal hand sanitisers for the staff, Air Niugini as part of its ongoing efforts to mitigate the risks of the spread of the corona virus, the airline has in place for both staff and passenger temperature checking, offers Personal Protective Equipment (PPEs) including face masks and making available hand sanitisers at offices and prior to passengers boarding the aircraft.
