Dear ATCNews Readers and Partners,

The world is changing drastically everyday by COVID-19, reshaping the world and our norms. Sadly and inevitably, we have family, relations, friends and acquaintances that are being affected. Our thoughts and prayers are with them, as we go through this difficult period of our lives.

For those that are still flying, you will be pleased to know that we, at Coastal, are taking extra steps to ensure the highest standards of hygiene and safety continue to be maintained on every flight. All operating aircraft are thoroughly cleaned and disinfected before every flight. All seats and contact surfaces are sanitised carefully in order to maintain the highest standards of hygiene.

When we’re through this and you’re ready to take back to the skies, please feel reassured that the safety of our passengers is our number 1 priority.

Below is a reminder of our cancellation and amendment policy, plus a few other updates, including the link to a 2-minute YouTube message.

Despite the circumstances, I hope you will find some peace and happiness over the Easter holidays. From Coastal, we wish you all a safe and enjoyable time over the Holidays.
