Some American Airlines flight attendants, members of the Association of Professional Flight Attendants (APFA), shared some tips for what you should avoid doing onboard a flight.
Economy class flights can be very tiring and stressful. From carrying suitcases from home, standing in lines at the airport, traveling long hours flight in seats with limited space, with a seat neighbour who “steals” your arm rest, and having a child cry in the seat behind us.
For reasons of comfort and to avoid panic among travelers, airlines prefer to hide some details of flight operations.
During this time when travel is limited, all we can do is imagine where to go, when the world returns to “normal”. However, due to technology innovation advances, there are new trends that could change the way we travel and do tourism.

How will people be kept apart at check-in, collecting their baggage, or walking around in the airport terminals? And during the flights? What tests will be required and how will they be carried?

Angola, like the majority of countries worldwide, is being severely hit by the COVID-19 pandemic. As a prevention measure against COVID-19, the Angolan government implemented flight interdictions on all commercial and private international flights to and from Angola.
Nonetheless, there are some exemptions to this interdiction, to secure the entry of essential goods, equipment and to allow the repatriation of citizens.
The Angolan government issued the closure of Angola all international borders from 0:00 Hours of 20th March, for a period of 15 days. If you are outside Angola and need to return before the closure of the borders and interdiction of all international flights, do it in a safe way, so you don’t take chances of getting infected during your journey.
