Delta Teams Up with RB, the Maker of Lysol®, to Advance Delta CareStandard and Disinfection Protocols
Delta is partnering with RB, the makers of Lysol®, to drive greater confidence in travel by innovating cleaner more hygienic experiences for customers and employees, alike. The partnership will pair Delta’s strength in safety and operational rigor with Lysol’s 130 years of germ-kill expertise and innovation to continue improving upon Delta CareStandardSM protocols launched during the COVID-19 pandemic across Delta airport locations and on board our aircraft.
Keeping surfaces clean is one of the areas the Delta CareStandard focuses on, along with giving travelers more space, cleaner air and providing safety and personal care from check-in to baggage claim, and every point in between. Together, Delta’s newly established Global Cleanliness division and Lysol will strengthen current Delta CareStandard cleanliness efforts and create the gold standard across touchpoints through:
- Breakthrough Disinfection Innovation: Delta and Lysol will work together to gather insights on consumers’ travel experiences to help inform the development of new, innovative disinfecting solutions for both the airport and onboard experience. We will also work together to identify and address ongoing germ-related travel concerns for customers. One of the first areas of focus will be developing breakthrough airplane lavatory solutions to help kill germs and protect customers and crew.
- Disinfecting Protocols and Best Practices: Microbiologists and germ-kill experts from Lysol will coordinate with Delta Global Cleanliness team to develop protocols for disinfection that will help protect customers against illness-causing bacteria and viruses in high-traffic areas where customers are most concerned about germs including departure gates, aircraft lavatories and Delta Sky Clubs. Delta will also deploy Delta Care Carts including EPA-approved disinfection products recommended by Lysol, making it easier to disinfect large seating areas and countertops more frequently.
- Lysol Products: Lysol will provide products to Delta, including Lysol Disinfectant Spray and Lysol Disinfecting Wipes, to be used with disinfecting protocols recommended by Lysol on high-touch germ hotspots across Delta areas from check-in to baggage claim.
The US Environmental Protection Agency recently approved both Lysol Disinfectant Spray and Lysol Disinfecting Wipes among the first to test effective against the novel coronavirus when used as directed on hard, non-porous surfaces.
