Read on to see how some Singapore Airlines cabin crew are helping 

As most of us stay safe at home, thanks must go to our frontline heroes – including those in the healthcare and transport sectors – for their hard work and commitment in the fight against the Covid-19 virus.

To support these amazing people, around 1,000 Singapore-based cabin crew from Singapore Airlines, SilkAir and Scoot have volunteered since early April to work alongside them on the ground as Care, Transport and Contact Tracing Ambassadors.

Their duties include supporting healthcare personnel in the hospital wards, ensuring that the public adheres to social distancing guidelines in the train and bus stations, and putting worried callers at ease during contact tracing phone conversations.

The Singapore crew put their renowned professionalism, communications skills and world-class service to good use in these roles. At the same time, it has also been an eye-opening experience and given everyone a deep sense of personal satisfaction and achievement.

Sarah Liew, 23 has been with Singapore Airlines for nearly two years and now for about a month, she's been working as a transport ambassador.  "I advise the general public to adhere to the safe distancing measures and I help in crowd control. In this role, not only do I ensure the safety of the commuters, I also help to advise the fastest and most comfortable route to get to their destination," she told the Straits Times newspaper. 

Miss Liew said that while she misses interacting with people from all over the world when flying, her current role lets her give back to the local community and still meet and work with people.

Leading steward Mohamad Faidhi Mohamad Ruzli is currently deployed as a  care ambassador at Ng Teng Fong General Hospital where he helps the nurses with tasks like repositioning patients in bed, checking their vital signs, taking meal orders and serving them as well as other non-clinical duties. 

Mr Faidhi has been with Singapore Airlines for more than 12 years, said: "Being a cabin crew has taught me to be proactive and sensitive while providing care for people.  While the transition is smooth, I always remind myself that extra care and concern must be considered while handling these patients who are unwell."
