Greater Bay Airlines requires passengers to fasten seatbelt at all times starting Thu

he Greater Bay Airlines announced that passengers will be required to fasten the seatbelt at all times during the flight even when the seatbelt sign is off starting from Thursday (May 30). 
“Some recent flight incidents of individual airlines suggested that fastening the seatbelt is an effective way to protect passengers, especially under unpredictable or severe weather conditions, such as convectively induced turbulence and clear-air turbulence,” a statement released on Wednesday read. 
This is not a mandatory requirement and the main objective of the initiative is to help enhance the safety awareness of passengers, the airline also said. 
Passengers can still feel free to use the toilet when the seatbelt sign is off, it added.
The airline also said announcements will be made onboard and cabin crew will remind passengers to fasten the seatbelt if they have not done so. 
The announcement came just days after Singapore Airlines flight SQ321 traveling from London to Singapore hit severe turbulence on May 21 and was forced to divert for an emergency landing at Suvarnabhumi Airport in Bangkok. 
During the incident, a 73-year-old British man died of a suspected heart attack and over 100 were injured.
