Our staff must go for temperature screening before reporting to work. If staff members or pilots exhibit any symptoms of COVID-19, they will not report to duty. All staff and passengers need to wear masks during the flight.

2. Will you take my temperature or COVID-19 report?

We will check your body temperature thoroughly with the help of a touchless thermometer before boarding the flight. If your temperature is above 98°C, there will be additional screenings, and your tour might be canceled. Also, we need your recent travel history and information regarding COVID-19 symptoms, tests, and exposures.

3. How is Everest Assistance implementing social distancing?

We limited the number of passengers in our lobby to ensure social distancing. For that, you also might have to wait outside for a while. Besides, during the flight, our crew members keep and maintain social distance among the passengers.

4. Will I have to share my flight with other passengers?

Our helicopters are cost per seat, with up to 5 passengers in a flight. However, if you want a private flight or you have your group, then you don’t have to share the flight with other people. But if you are traveling solo and want to minimize your cost, then joining a group tour would be a good option.
