British Airways works with RB, the makers of Dettol, to keep customers safe
British Airways has announced that it will partner with a trusted and iconic hygiene brand Dettol, The UK’s disinfectant brand as part of its ongoing commitment to the safety of its customers and colleagues.
From March 2021, the airline’s customers will have access to a range of Dettol products that have been shown to kill 99.9% of bacteria and coronavirus (SARS-COV-2) in the air and on the ground. The airline’s updated cleaning protocols with Dettol products were endorsed by the London School of Hygiene and Tropical Medicine.
At Heathrow Terminal 5, Dettol hand disinfection stations will be positioned at all check-in counters, self-service bags, lounges and at the departure gates and will replace the current disinfection stations with Dettol products. The airline will also use Dettol antibacterial wipes, detergents and sprays to keep surfaces at the airport and in the lounges clean.
In the air, British Airways will introduce a Dettol antibacterial sanitary towel. Every customer receives a package with the wipe when boarding the aircraft.
Carolina Martinoli, British Airways Director of Brand and Customer, said: “We look forward to welcoming our customers back on board and are proud to announce our partnership with Dettol, a trusted and well-known disinfectant brand. At the start of the pandemic, we put a number of protections in place at every step of the customer journey, and we think our partnership with Dettol is a great addition. “
“Working with British Airways is exciting as we both share the same goal of protecting travelers. This is an ideal partnership for RB and Dettol to achieve a high standard of hygiene and reassure consumers that they can enjoy the British Airways experience. Our brand is built on trust, scientific effectiveness and our desire to educate consumers around the world to break the chain of infection, ”said Rahul Kaydan, Executive Vice President of Global Business Solutions, RB.
Professor James Logan, a member of the London School of Hygiene & Tropical Medicine, said, “Health-based cleaning protocols and additional personal safety measures are one of the most crucial tools as we all work to reopen business and travel around the globe. We pride ourselves on bringing our expertise and knowledge to the COVID-19 response on a national and global level. At the London School of Hygiene & Tropical Medicine, we are delighted to be working with British Airways and RB staff to advise them on the program. “
