Here’s how airlines are making travel Covid-safe

With the coronavirus spreading across the globe, travel has taken a drastic hit, with the International Air Transport association reporting 79.8 percent less traffic than in July, last year. In light of the decrease, airlines are upping the ante on safety.

All the major airlines are carrying out regular disinfections, ensuring their passengers are asymptomatic and covered up.

Some airlines - like Indigo - are fumigating frequent touchpoints like door handles and seats, including wheelchairs, crew vehicles, armrests and overhead nozzles.

United Airlines is one airline that’s using an antimicrobial coating - Zoona Microbe Shield - on its seats, trays, bins and bathrooms. 

As a standard, most airlines are equipping their fleet with HEPA filters to recycle air, while most airports also have the hospital-grade filters installed to ensure fresher recycled air.
