year inside our lifetime was circa 2020
One of the craziest. I assume our generation people would forget what 2020 has bought for all of us never. The global world had arrived at an utter standstill and there have been absolutely no types of travel, both domestic, international, and let traveling in one spot to another was definitely not possible alone.
However, as things eased the later section of 2020, with courage and bravery &trust also, I made a decision to happen to be Dubai that is among my favourite destinations also it holds a particular place.
I have already been travelling extensively last couple of years in flight but 2020 was so different without travel at all, So, when i again planned to visit, i was excited and equally nervous because the pandemic includes a complete large amount of travel restrictions and safety involved.
So When I made a decision to booked the flight, I trusted India Best airline carrier “IndiGo”, booked my flights to Dubai where I flew to Sharjah from Bengaluru first.
One of the brand new mandate which differs predicated on your destination is compulsory RT-PCR test 96 hours before departure and IndiGo managed to get easy where they will have tangled up with STEMZ Global that is a leading preventive doctor for RT-PCR test.For more information: https://www.stemzglobal.com/covid/IndiGo
Hence, before leaving Bangalore, India I made a decision to take the RT-PCR test with STEMZ Global also it was an instant and easy process where they collected my nose and throat swab from the house itself. Eagerly awaiting the full total results and i acquired it in under 24 hours, I acquired my test result as Negative and off I head to my First International trip because the pandemic.
make it easy
To, the Indigo6E website has given complete information that one may travel internationally according to regulations and rules from the federal government ,one have to carry RT-PCR test from government approved laboratory in India also it shouldn’t be a lot more than 96 hours before departure.
The RT-PCR test ought to be duly signed and stamped by relevant authorities and should be written in English or Arabic. The test result is calculated to 96 hours because the sample is collected till enough time of first port of departure.
Once i acquired the full total results in under 24 hours, I visited the laboratory to find the report attested with unique printout since UAE doesn’t allow electronic copy or print out copy.
Once i had all of the documents ready for me personally to fly to UAE such as the Visa and RT-PCR ensure that you valid return tickets with my accommodation confirmation, I arrived at Kempegowda AIRPORT TERMINAL (KIAL) , it felt like i’m visiting the airport for the 1st time because the whole place looks different with many SOP and safety protocols set up.Thermal scanning is performed for every flyer at the entrance of the airport and we visited the check-in counter of IndiGo.The airport looks different in comparison to my regular travel pre covid times quite.All Social Distancing protocols are followed at the airport.
IndiGo was ensuring the required safety precautions at every touchpoint like i witnessed from the Check-in counter just, baggage drop counter.Regular Cleaning/sanitation of
touch-points like baggage drop counters were done for the safety of the client and the staff alike.
The whole check-in process was seamless contactless experience.The staffs were very useful and courteous and the fomalities at the IndiGo check-in was completed once, I headed to the immigration & security check.
It was good to see all passengers following safety norms such as for example Wearing of Masks, Social Distancing and Frequent Sanitisation of hands.
Once the immigration along with other security formalities were done in ease,I headed to the lounge and was surprised to note that they will have both dining & pleasantly; takeaway meals served which wasn’t the case pre covid times.
Once, we were prepared to board, IndiGo paid passenger safety kit that includes Nose and mouth mask, Face shield, Sanitiser that is directed at every passenger and every middle seat passenger also get yourself a PPE kit which my partner volunteered to wear and i’m glad IndiGo is ensuring every safety aspects in flights is taken look after the safety of the travellers that is their utmost priority.
As i began to board and walk through the aerobridge ,I was quite emotional to visit after 9 months and in addition glaad that my first experience because the pandemic has been great till now and i was greeted by the indiGo Staffs.
The aircraft is sanitised after each travel and  thoroughly;The air onboard is refreshed every three minutes and the new air in the aircraft using HEPA Filters.
Once we became popular, I used the meals onboard and love your options that #IndiGo offers for both Veg & Non Veg.The Air hostess and Staffs in the flight were in PPE suits and were serving us with love and care which IndiGo is well known for.
Once we landed,We’d several new process organized by the destination and since i have landed in Sharjah, We’d to have a mandatory RT-PCR test at the airport and got our immigration done and we reached our hotel and checked-in and needed to be quarantined inside in the area till the outcomes of the test are out.A SMS will be got by us to the registered local UAE number.
We got the outcomes in 12 hours and until spent enough time in the room itself then.
Overall, Since this is my first trip because the Pandemic, i was reluctant initially but IndiGo amazed me by  quite;ensuring the required safety precautions at every touchpoint through the consumer journey, from the baggage drop counter completely till baggage claim and making the complete travel experience contactless and hassle-free.
I would ensure that after my travel with IndiGo, flying is safe and passengers should start flying in 2021 again. Also, we are able to trust to fly us to the places secure IndiGo.
