Undoubtedly, the most striking issue during the epidemic was social distance. This situation is important not only in the transfer sector, but also in all businesses and sectors that care about social distance. This situation will continue to be maintained in airport transfers. It is predicted that the density of VIP transfer vehicles will increase in this sense, especially due to the width of the vehicle.
Of course, uncertainty in airports and flights will also manifest themselves in airport transfers. Flexible reservation service will be offered to the passengers in this sense, especially considering the canceled or changed flights. In this way, passengers will be able to move more easily while arranging airport transfers.
Due to the Covid-19 epidemic, hygiene measures taken both in the sector and personally appear as one of the issues that are as important as social distance. At this point, we can say that the airport transfer vehicles are professionally disinfected, creating a great trust for the passengers. Transfer journeys will become safer, especially with disinfection processes made with ozone technology after each transfer. It may also be possible to revise the in-car air conditioning filters.
It is possible to talk about 50% -60% capacities especially in tourism and travel sector. At the point we have reached, it is planned to serve with a capacity of 50% in air transport and 60% in hotels. This seems to directly affect passenger capacity in transfer companies. A vehicle that provides 10 transfers per day may have to halve the number of transfers. In addition, an arrangement will be introduced to the passenger capacity especially in large transfer vehicles. A 15-person transfer vehicle can also adapt to the social distance rule by halving passenger capacity.
As in all sectors, all personnel can be trained on pandemic in transfer transportation. Particular attention will be given to this issue, especially for airport transfer office workers and drivers who will be in direct contact with passengers. Drivers will be provided with a training on how to disinfect the vehicle for the Covid-19 outbreak. Things to do with the passenger's vehicle will be transferred to the drivers. Similar measures will apply to office workers.
Similar measures will be taken against the Covid-19 outbreak, not only for employees but also for passengers leasing transfers. No more than a certain number of passengers will be admitted, nor will it be allowed to buy unmasked passengers. In some cases, even the body temperature of the passengers will be controlled. Measures that passengers should take individually can report by transfer companies. Disinfectants, masks and gloves that passengers can use can be kept inside the vehicle. In this way, it will be possible to make a safer journey.
Passengers will be hosted in quieter areas of the airport, not directly from the airport gate. In this way, the social distance rule will be followed for both the driver and the passenger. Transfer vehicle drivers will be provided with extra isolation by waiting in an area determined by the transfer company rather than waiting for the crowd. Likewise, the passenger will be removed from the crowd and directed to a more isolated environment as soon as possible.
The measures to be taken against the Covid-19 outbreak may vary depending on the distance to be traveled. If the passenger or passengers will spend longer in the vehicle, these counted measures can be increased. By opening windows every 15 minutes, the rules regarding the ventilation of the vehicle and the use of air conditioning can be determined so that the passengers can feel more secure.
