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

Delta’s latest innovation  builds on the Delta CareStandard which also includes the launch of  the first biometric terminal and working together to speed up international security lines in Atlanta.

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.
