Last month, the government issued advice surrounding air travel - urging people that the best way to fly was to wear a face mark and not bring hand luggage on the flight.
As well as that, airlines have been asked to attempt to minimise the number of face-to-face interactions between staff and passengers whilst on the plane and in the airport.
