Airline continues to raise the bar to protect travelers
By Patti Pietschmann, Travel Diva
In an attempt to allay concerns, airlines are stepping up safety measures. Delta appears to be leading the pack with many innovative procedures. The latest of which is bins using antimicrobial material in place at TSA checkpoints.
Working in tandem with TSA
Delta, in tandem with the Transportation Security Administration, is rolling out the bins in Atlanta, Minneapolis/St. Paul, Los Angeles, New York-LaGuardia and New York-JFK.
The technology prevents growth of a broad spectrum of bacteria. There’s a sleek black color and indicator on bin handles that assures customers that their belongings are safe.
Building on Delta Care and TSA operations
Meanwhile TSA is heightening security operations by installing high-touch screening equipment and hourly bin cleaning.
Other Delta safety measures
Additional Delta precautions include blocking middle seats on plane through January 2021 and changing high-grade HEPA air filters twice as often as recommended.
