Enhanced Cleaning Onboard and at the Airport

In light of COVID-19, we have added the following stringent cleaning measures:


  • Both an electrostatic disinfectant and an anti-microbial spray are applied on every surface of the aircraft, killing viruses on contact and forming an anti-microbial coating or shield for 30 days.
  • Sani-Cide EX3, a broad-spectrum disinfectant, will be used to clean onboard lavatories and tray tables before every flight.
  • We deep clean each plane from nose to tail for nearly 6-7 hours every night.
  • We’re cleaning the ticket counters, gates, and baggage claim areas multiple times a day.
  • Hand sanitizer is available at the check-in kiosks, ticket counters, and gates. Wipes will be available for Customers onboard upon request.
