Jul. 16 2020

The Spanish airline Volotea has signed an agreement with Bureau Veritas, a world leader in testing, inspection and certification, in order to verify the successful implementation of health and hygiene measures as it resumes operations. Volotea is the world’s first airline to have its preventive measures against Covid-19 audited by Bureau Veritas.

Volotea, the airline that serves Europe’s regional capitals, has signed an agreement with
Bureau Veritas in order to verify the successful implementation of health and hygiene
measures at its sites and on board its planes.

Bureau Veritas has carried out a series of audits based on strict criteria, with the goal of
validating the measures taken by Volotea as it resumes flights. These audits enable Volotea
to maximize high standards of safety, hygiene and cleaning for its customers and employees.
The successful outcome of the audits has enabled Volotea to obtain Bureau Veritas attestation
demonstrating that its protocols and preventative measures against Covid-19 are effective.

“We want to go beyond government recommendations and offer the best flying conditions to
customers and staff alike. To this end, we decided to have the implementation of our health
measures approved and we are delighted to have signed this agreement with Bureau Veritas,
a world leader in testing, inspection and certification. Our goal is to ensure we are offering the
best customer experience and safe flights and we are convinced that external certification is
the best way to do this,”
announced Alex de Jesus, Chief Experience Officer.

Jacques Pommeraud, Managing Director - Africa, France and Government services of
Bureau Veritas
explains: “We are very proud to be able to support Volotea as it resumes
operations. We are pleased to work with this major player in the air transport industry to enable
it to reassure employees and customers. This, in combination with our hospitality audits, will
allow consumers to benefit from a real ‘corridor of confidence’ during their travels.”

assessment forms part of the "Restart Your Business with BV” suite of solutions put together
