What airlines are doing to promote traveller health and safety

Clean airlines

Airlines are taking great strides to adapt to the current environment and implement more stringent cleaning measures. Most north American airlines have CDC-approved cleaning policies in place, including disinfecting and cleaning surfaces in between each flight. In addition, many airlines use HEPA filters for air filtration on flights, which remove 99.97% of bacteria in the air on planes. This means that airborne particles that spread viruses aren’t spreading around planes through the recycled air. Many airlines are also providing virus response kits and additional cleaning materials to crews flying through areas with higher risks and travel warnings.

Airlines have also introduced safety protocols that include creating distance by not seating customers in the middle seat and limiting refreshment services – with some airlines offering limiting service to bottled water for passengers.
