Delta Partners with Lysol to Increase Safety in the Air

Delta Air Lines announced a partnership with the maker of Lysol disinfectant.

The Atlanta-based airline will work with Reckitt Benckiser, a British consumer products company that makes Lysol, to improve Delta CareStandard protocols launched in the early days of the coronavirus pandemic.

Microbiologists from the company will work with the airline to create new protocols for cleaning areas in the airport as well as on its aircraft, the airline said.  Delta will also purchase such items as disinfectant sprays and wipes from the company for a variety of uses.

RB and Delta will undertake “R&D to target germ ‘hot spots,’” said the airline’s chief customer experience officer, in order to “cement the Delta CareStandard as the industry gold standard.”

The relationship with RB is in addition to Delta’s previously announced partnership with the Mayo Clinic that is directed at creating Covid-19 prevention and control measures.

Delta’s partnership with RB is not exclusive: other companies in the travel industry have already announced partnerships with the company, including Hilton Worldwide, which in June announced its Hilton CleanStay with Lysol program to address hotel disinfection and cleanliness. Delta rival United Airlines already announced a partnership with the Clorox Company.  United will use Clorox-branded products at airport gate and terminal areas, it said.
