The International Air Transport Association has asked airlines to heed the WHO when it says that flights should be continued to those countries affected by Ebola. This is so that those regions can still make connections to other countries. The IATA made this plea after even more carriers halted flights to the West African countries affected.
According to the WHO and IATA, airlines need only to screen passengers at those airports in affected countries, use isolation when handling suspected cases, and disinfect planes after flights. The WHO says that aviation is still a low-risk for transmitting Ebola. The WHO has said that trade and travel bans aren’t necessary, and unless that advice changes, the IATA hopes that airlines will still have air connectivity.
