No, I’m not talking about schoolboy humour, though I don’t blame you for assuming, but rather keeping it clean and germ-free on holiday.
And, of course, I must start with the Coronavirus.
Word reaches me from my friends at Turkish Airlines www.turkishairlines.com about the measures they take to disinfect your plane.
And let’s face it airplanes ate a magnet for germs.
Let it slide: At Turkish Airlines HQ
Well Turkish have sent us a video of their health guys in protective white suits spraying throughout the plane.
I’ve also seen first-hand from my visit to Turkish Airlines headquarters in Istanbul how far they go to protect our health and safety.
On my trip to the city Wham bam, thank you Hamam where their safety precautions are space age.
There are pools with water the same temperature as the sea to replicate emergency conditions.
And slides, though these days you and me can’t whizz down them…
They’re right to worry that I’d get my stiletto heel stuck.
While, of course, in the event of the call going out for an emergency pilot I have had training on the simulator.
Turkish also put the fun into function with their multi-award winning Business Lounge at the swanky new Istanbul Airport.
Where you can eat and drink your heart out.
And play golf, drive model cars, watch a movie or have a snooze…
A few more words on the Turks… they are one of the cleanest people I have ever met.
It’s their religion and culture and it is also true throughout the Middle East The water of life, Petra, and the sands of time.
And that’s probably why they make such good barbers – the good chat is free. Turkish barbers – and berbers
Now more information on the Coronavirus… I’m reliably informed that it doesn’t like the heat.
So guess where I want to go… well, you have to keep safe!
Our friends at TUI www.tuiholidays.ie have the very thing…
