You will then be provided with a sealed amenities kit which includes items such as hand sanitizers, face masks and facial tissues, along with necessary information on how to keep yourself safe when you arrive at the resort. As you board the JOALI seaplane from the lounge, rest assured that it has gone through enhanced cleaning and disinfecting after every flight.
