The Post-COVID-19 Economy

The world economy has been fundamentally altered by the COVID-19 pandemic. Across the developed world, unemployment has spiked, public debt has sky-rocketed and central banks have resorted to unorthodox policies.

Evacuation, repatriation and quarantine support

We know that as businesses respond to the ongoing impact of COVID-19, erratic regulatory and logistical changes can quickly limit options – stranding individual employees and teams far from home.

AKE’s crisis response capabilities, experience and established relationships with the global hospitality sector, enable us to offer unique end-to-end air evacuation, repatriation and quarantine solutions (to include Stay at Home Notice (SHN) services) for organisations around the world.

These services have been designed to be flexible and to primarily deliver duty of care, ensuring the health and wellbeing of team members, and enabling business continuity.

Our evacuation and repatriation capabilities are augmented by additional services to include:

  • Accommodation
  • WiFi
  • Meals and laundry
  • Personal exercise and mental wellbeing kit
  • Daily temperature, wellness, location tracking & other compliance requirements via the AKE Know App

With enhanced service to include:

  • 24/7 concierge
  • Secretarial services
  • Shopping service
  • Medical support & clinical appointment transfers
  • AKE COVID-19 insights and analysis
  • Airport transfers

For more information or to discuss your requirements please contact: +44 (0)20 3816 9970 or

Temporary accommodation and SHN support are currently available in: Singapore, Kuala Lumpur, Malacca, Langkawi, Bangkok, Phuket, Bali, Hoi An, Vanuatu, Sri Lanka, Turks & Caicos Islands, London & Miami. *

*Subject to availability and local regulations.

We have prepared these simple guidelines to support you:

  • Use only non-contact infrared forehead thermometers
  • Hold the thermometer 3-5 cm from the person’s forehead
  • Person must hold still for at least 3 seconds – movement may give a false reading
  • Person should be indoors and away from direct sunlight
  • Person should move any hair from forehead before taking temp
  • The person is positive for a fever if the temp is reading 38 c or 100.4 f
  • The metabolic rate of children and ovulating women may result in a slightly higher than normal temp.
  • Similarly, the slower metabolic rate of adults over 65 may result in a slightly lower than normal temp.

We can support your business remotely. AKE is delivering awareness and medical briefings, continuity planning and response for our clients globally.
