Russia: Aeroflot Holds Bird Flu Drill.

Russian Airlines has held a bird flu drill – stewardesses had to isolate “an ailing passenger” during a flight without a prior warning. Cooperation between the Aeroflot crisis control center and the crew with representatives of the Sanitary and Epidemiological Service was also trained, the company press service said on Friday.

Aeroflot is daily monitoring the epidemiological situation in Turkey. All the crews pass medical examinations before flights, and they have been informed what to do in case of finding an infectious disease patient onboard.
