Five Ways Delta is Keeping Lavatories Safe For You

Cleanliness across travel and particularly in airplane lavatories is of utmost importance, especially in the COVID-19 era, but Delta customers can rest easy.

Here are five ways Delta is keeping lavatories – and the rest of your onboard experience – safe, clean and comfortable on every flight, with even more enhancements to come:

1. Hand sanitizer stations on your flights:

Delta will become the first U.S. airline where customers can find hand sanitizer stations near the boarding door and bathrooms on every Delta aircraft. Now, you’ll truly never be more than a few feet away from hand sanitizer, with stations available from curb to claim.

Depending on the size of the aircraft and the number of customers, each Delta aircraft will have up to five hand sanitizer stations. Installations begin on Aug. 28 with the Boeing 757-200 fleet.

2. Flight attendants are wiping it down:

While in the air, Flight Attendants regularly make sure lavatories are clean, tidy, fully stocked with supplies, and ready for customers. Using kits that include disinfectant spray, wipes, and gloves, flight attendants ensure the thorough sanitization completed prior to boarding stays fresh.

3. Look out for hands-free features:

Bathrooms on Delta’s A350s, A330-900neos, 767-400s, and 757-200s already have some hands-free features such as touchless faucets, flush levers, and waste lids.

As Delta continues to look for more ways to reduce touchpoints, the airline will be exploring how it can bring touchless features forward throughout the travel experience.

4. Hand-washing reminders:

Already installed on more than 130 planes, all aircraft bathrooms will soon feature hand-washing reminders.

5. Electrostatic sprayers:

Every interior surface is thoroughly sanitized prior to boarding using electrostatic sprayers. Following this process, cleaning crews complete an extensive checklist of cleaning procedures using this same high-grade disinfectant to wipe down personal and common areas of the cabin – including lavatories.

Delta’s employees will then perform spot checks throughout the aircraft and if it doesn’t meet their high standards before you board, the airline’s teams are encouraged to hold the flight to call back the cleaning crew.
