Airlines, travelers can take steps to limit risk of flying

Air travel means spending time in security lines and airport terminals, which puts you into close contact with other people. As travel slowly recovers, planes are becoming more crowded, which means you will likely sit close to other people, often for hours, which raises your risk.

Will ‘green shoots’ lead to a transformed aviation industry? — Western Aviation News

The British Columbia Aviation Council said Monday it is starting to see small ‘green shoots’ of regrowth in the province’s aviation sector, after the devastation wrought by the COVID-19 pandemic.

“It’s an extremely ugly bottom for our industry but at least we appear to be there,” the council said Monday in a note to members. “Some small grass shoots have just started to appear. The big question is how fast will they grow.”

BCAC member Pacific Coastal, the third-busiest airline at Vancouver International Airport when it suspended operations March 25, announced the same day it would restart limited service on June 1.

“We are pleased to confirm that we will be resuming scheduled service on June 1, 2020,” the carrier said on its website.

“Our intention is to help provide air service for essential service workers, move important goods and cargo, provide access for customers who need to travel for various medical appointments (unrelated to COVID-19) and continue to offer remote communities access to the essential service of air travel should they require it.”

Beverly Hills first city to ban tobacco sales —

Here’s something travelers who smoke may want to begin looking for. With many establishments adopting a no smoking policy–is Beverly Hills setting a new trend?

The Beverly Hills City Council on Tuesday unanimously voted to make it the first U.S. city to ban the sale of cigarettes, cigars, e-cigarettes and other tobacco products.

The ban applies to gas stations, pharmacies, convenience and grocery stores, but includes exemptions for hotels and three local cigar lounges. It is set to take effect beginning in 2021.

Local business owners opposed the measure, arguing it would harm sales and could force employee layoffs. Meanwhile public health advocates argued that the benefits to public health outweigh the negative impact a ban could have on retail sales.

So for my smokers–you may want to begin looking out for this new trend when traveling–just in case you need reinforcements, or accommodations!
