United Airlines is working with the Cleveland Clinic and Clorox to “redefine” its cleaning and disinfecting procedures, the carrier announced.
The partnerships are part of a new program, United CleanPlus, that the carrier has introduced. Clorox will provide products to aid with disinfecting high-touch areas as well as amenities for passengers, such as hand sanitizer wipes as they board the aircraft. The Cleveland Clinic, meanwhile, will help United keep its policies in procedures in line with the latest data on Covid-19, according to Scott Kirby, who today formally became United’s CEO.
“Physicians and scientists at the Cleveland Clinic will advise us on new technologies and approaches, assist in training development and create a rigorous quality assurance program,” Kirby said in a video message. “As scientists learn more about how to fight Covid-19, Cleveland Clinic experts will help us use those discoveries to quickly implement new ways to keep our customers safe.”
United also is working with a full-time, on-site medical director to test technology, such as UV sanitation via drones and handheld wands, antimicrobial shield for surfaces and artificial intelligence that can help with temperature screenings and crowd management.
