Korean Air has announced that it is providing protective gowns and goggles to all cabin crew members from April 21 to help protect passengers and staff.

On all flights, its cabin crew are wearing goggles, masks and gloves, while protective gowns are being provided on medium- and long-haul inbound flights as overseas COVID-19 cases continue to increase.

The airline said all protective gowns, masks and gloves are discarded after the flight and personal goggles are sanitised before reuse.

According to the airline, a flight attendant who had worked in the protective clothing said: “It was light and easy to wear. I didn’t experience any inconvenience.”
