The CAL Group, which includes China Airlines,
Mandarin Airlines, and Tigerair Taiwan, has upgraded quarantine
measures in response to the novel coronavirus (2019-nCoV) outbreak
by adjusting its inflight services for cross-strait and
Taiwan-Hong Kong/Macau flights effective today, 28 January 2020.
Key considerations include the reduction of personal
contact, reduced use of non-essential reusable items, and a switch
to disposable consumables. Passengers are also encouraged to bring
their own beverage bottles.
In addition to the standard disinfection process, all flights that pass through Mainland China
and Taiwan, as well as flights arriving in Taiwan from Hong Kong
and Macau will now have their tray tables, arm rests and over-head
luggage compartments to be extra disinfected as well to protect
the health of passengers and crew members.
