Delta Clean: A new standard of airline cleanliness


Delta Air Lines is transforming expectations for cleanliness across airports and on aircraft to deliver a new standard of cleanliness for customers: Delta Clean.

The airline is committing to these elevated sanitizing measures for the long term.

Measures include:

  • Fogging overnight to disinfect domestic and international aircraft.
  • Aircraft cleaned before every flight using the same extensive checklist used during overnight cleanings, disinfecting high-touch areas like tray tables, seat-back entertainment screens, arm rests and seat-back pockets.
  • Spot checks before each flight by a Customer Service Agent and a Flight Leader. The team are empowered to request a cleaning crew return to the aircraft for additional cleaning.

The disinfectant used in fogging is immediately safe to breathe and is similar to what hospitals and restaurants use to sanitize. Meanwhile, customers will find hand sanitizer at various touchpoints, while surfaces are disinfected across the airport experience.
