Delta Air Lines has announced its new collaboration with RB, the makers of Lysol, through which it aims to develop breakthrough disinfection solutions and even further elevate standards for hygiene in air travel.
The partnership with Delta’s newly-formed Global Cleanliness Division aims to promote greater consumer confidence in travel by innovating ways to provide safer and cleaner air-travel experiences for both customers and staff.
The cooperative effort will draw upon the strength of Delta’s customer-safety and operational expertise, paired with Lysol’s 130-year legacy of germ-killing product innovations and applications.
Effective sanitization of surfaces at the airport and in aircraft cabins is a key element of Delta CareStandard protocols, launched in recent months to combat the pandemic’s continued spread. The airline is also providing its passengers with more space and cleaner air during flights, and supporting personal care and hygiene throughout the travel journey, from the moment guests check-in all the way through baggage claim.
Bill Lentsch, Delta’s Chief Customer Experience Officer, said, “There’s no finish line for cleanliness—there’s always more we can do to innovate and elevate our already-high standards because that’s what our customers and employees expect and deserve.”
“The experts at Lysol share our drive for innovative, continuous improvement—they’re the best at their craft. That’s why we’re excited to get started on R&D to target germ ‘hot spots’ and cement the Delta CareStandard as the industry gold standard—so customers feel confident in choosing Delta as more people return to travel,” he added.
