Working with internal staff, Delta’s Flight Products team has created an additional layer of safety at airports for its customers, as well as the airline’s staff. Plexiglass safety barriers have been installed in airport check-in lobbies, at each departure gate, as well as at Delta Sky Club check-in counters.
The Atlanta-based carrier has often amazed the industry with its ability to move quickly to make major changes, and the manufacturing of more than 150 barriers daily in order to update all of its airport locations was no small feat.
Delta’s commitment to sanitizing all aircraft before each flight continues, as well as maximizing load factors at 60% through at least the end of July. The airline has made adjustments to boarding procedures to allow for more space between travelers, and middle seats remain blocked. High-touch areas in airport lobbies, gate areas, and aboard each aircraft receive special attention with extensive disinfecting practices being utilized.
Most Delta aircraft are equipped with state-of-the art air circulation systems that remove 99.99% of particles, includes coronaviruses, via HEPA filters.
