Clearing the Air: See How Delta is Improving Air Quality
Delta Air Lines is stepping up its innovative measures to ensure an improved customer experience on board its flights.
Keeping the air you breathe clean and safe during flight is one of the most foundational layers of protection Delta aims to provide to its customers and employees.
Just as Delta has focused on ensuring clean air onboard by replacing its industrial-grade HEPA filters twice as often as recommended, the airline is also committed to ensuring clean air on the ground.
By mid-September, Delta will replace the current air filtering systems that pump outside air into its jetbridges and parked aircraft with LEED Platinum MERV14 filters.
The measure will result in a more than 40% reduction in air particles and cleaner air in those spaces during boarding and deplaning.
More than 600 gates at 31 airports where Delta operates will be outfitted with these sustainable, top-of-the-line filters, so customers can breathe easy both onboard and off.
As it continues to innovate, Delta is working with leading experts to measure and validate the effectiveness of the safety measures it has in place.
