Blade implements virus prevention across all services
Attempting to minimise the transmission risk of COVID-19 contamination to passengers, pilots and employees, Blade has taken the advice of a medical expert and put measures in place.
Dr Andrew Bazos is advising Blade on non-contact temperature screening of passengers and sanitising cabins and equipment.

In coordination with Dr Andrew Bazos, an advisor to Blade and Blade's MediMobility division, the company has implemented preventative measures and policies in conjunction with its operators to minimise the transmission risk of COVID-19 to its fliers, pilots and employees.

Blade's helicopter and jet check in process is one of the most important ways it ensures the safety and security of its passengers. This process will now include non-contact temperature screening at all Blade lounges and airports for the foreseeable future.

Additional preventative measures include all helicopter and jet passenger cabins to be sanitised before each flight; helicopter headphones to be sanitised before each flight and microphones to be removed as an additional precaution; all Blade ground transportation vehicle interiors to be sanitised before each pick up, including ground transfers between helicopters and airport terminals as well as jet and helicopter arrival transportation, eg Blade Ground Connect services in Miami, Westchester, Los Angeles or New York City. Blade utilises its own dedicated fleet of SUVs at all New York area airports.

Dr Bazos has an honours degree in biochemistry from Harvard University and graduated from Yale University School of Medicine. He founded CrowdRx in 1989, and his team of emergency physicians and public safety experts provide medical advice and on-site medical services for important large public events and conferences throughout the world.
