Berlin, Nov 27 (EFE) .- The CEO of the German airline Lufthansa, Carsten Spohr, is convinced that flight bans will be imposed globally for people not vaccinated against covid-19.
They can no longer enter the United States and “we observe this trend globally,” he told the regional daily “Westdeutsche Allgemeine Zeitung (WAZ), and stressed that” global freedom will be maintained for the vaccinated and healed.
On the other hand, he alluded to the advantages of the mandatory vaccination, as it will come into force in Austria and is already in force for the flight personnel of Swiss, the Swiss subsidiary of Lufthansa.
In both Swiss and Austrian Airlines, the Austrian subsidiary of the consortium, practically all flight personnel are vaccinated and in Germany, more than 90%, he said.
He added that the mandatory vaccination is something that “politicians have to decide,” while referring to the vaccination rate in Germany, one of the lowest in Europe, with only 68.4% of the population vaccinated.
“Yes I am disappointed that the people of poets and thinkers are not more enlightened and open when it comes to modern medicine and technology,” he lamented.
On the other hand, he pointed out that the 3G rule – for geimpft, genesen, getestet (vaccinated, healed or tested) – is being applied since this week on internal Lufthansa flights, also for the crew, for the moment without any type from problems.
