A letter from our CEO regarding the coronavirus pandemic
At 1B.flights, we believe in the power of travel: to create joy, to bring people together, to enrich our hearts and minds. With the novel coronavirus (COVID-19) now declared a global pandemic, we cannot help but think of all those we know and care about around the world, including you, whom we have had the privilege to serve. So I wanted to contact you personally to share more about what we are doing.
First and foremost, we care about everyone’s safety, and are closely monitoring the situation and guidance from the World Health Organization (WHO), as well as our travel partners, to ensure we are giving you the most up-to-date information possible. Because the situation and policies vary by location, we encourage everyone to stay informed and follow the recommendations of your local health authorities.
No matter where you live, and whether you are travelling or not, it’s worth our repeating the WHO’s advice for protecting yourself and others: wash your hands frequently with soap and/or alcohol-based sanitisers; avoid touching your eyes, nose, and mouth; cover your mouth or nose when you sneeze or cough; and maintain distance between yourself and anyone who is coughing or sneezing. Of course, if you have a fever, cough, or difficulty breathing yourself, seek medical attention.
For those travelling now and with upcoming travel bookings, our teams are working around the clock to provide everyone the support they need. We are rapidly increasing the availability of travel advisors, enhancing our self-service options, and developing new automated ways for travellers to better manage their reservations. Our focus is helping travellers with immediate trips, and these improvements will allow all our customers to travel more confidently in the future.
If you are planning new travel, we strongly encourage you to book options with built-in flexibility like free cancellation and changes. Please note that all flights booked on our website include FREE cancellation protection from now on.
Please stay safe during these difficult times!
