BLADE Health and Safety Protocol

The following Health and Safety Protocol was designed by BLADE’s MediMobility team in conjunction with our Medical Advisor to protect our community from the further spread of COVID-19. We are continually monitoring the latest technology and procedures from around the world to ensure the health, safety and security of our passengers.

Recently implemented COVID-19 Health and Safety Protocol:

  • All pilots, passengers, and BLADE employees undergo touchless temperature checks.

  • All pilots, passengers, and BLADE employees will undergo a simple oxygen level test using a medical-grade oximeter. This combination of body temperature and blood oxygen level tests represents the most reliable COVID screening possible during check-in.

  • Pilots, passengers and BLADE Lounge personnel are required to wear masks or face shields (and sanitary gloves for pilots and employees).

  • All aircraft interiors are electrostatically decontaminated using an airline-grade fogging system before every flight.

Seaplanes/Planes:

All the standard protocols above plus:


  • This season we have reconfigured our accessible fleet to allow each passenger to have their own window seat, separated from other passengers by an aisle, and eliminated bench seating (unless requested by two individuals flying together).

Helicopters:

All the standard protocols above plus:


  • Helicopter headphones (utilized on certain aircraft) will be sanitized before each flight and microphones removed.

  • The middle seat will not be used for any flights to enable additional physical distancing onboard–reducing the helicopter passenger capacity by approximately 20% and removing the need for full bench seating.

BLADEone:

All the standard protocols above plus:


  • BLADE SKYcx are required to wear face shields, masks and gloves at all times.

  • Masks are mandatory for all passengers when not eating and drinking.

  • BLADEone jets are uniquely designed to allow every passenger the comfort of their own captain's chair—every seat is an aisle and window seat so you can enjoy maximum physical distancing.

  • Meals are served fully covered.

  • Aircraft lavatories are sanitized following each use.
