Iberia helps the staff

IAG member airline Iberia is to check all staff returning from furlough, some 2,500 in May alone.

Testing, which is voluntary for employees, will be performed again 15 and 30 days later.  The airline is to implement a special Covid-19 health plan, designed in collaboration with the Quirónsalud health care firm and employee representatives. The aim is to give all employees the most robust possible protection against the virus.

The plan calls for blood tests to detect Covid-19 antibodies in employees as well as disinfection of all workplaces, the use of personal protective equipment (PPE) and other hygiene measures, teleworking wherever possible, etc.

In May alone, antibody tests were performed on some 2,500 Iberia employees working in the airport and in aircraft maintenance, as well as cockpit and cabin crews. In the course of the year, the entire staff of nearly 17,000 people can be tested.

The tests will be carried out in Iberia health stations and on Quirónsalud premises.

Polymerase chain reaction (PCR) tests to detect active Covid-19 cases will be given to employees returning after sick leave, and to others who may have been exposed to active cases.

The company is also considering the installation of thermal cameras to screen employees for fever, among other measures.
