The Caribbean, Mexico, Hawaii… there are plenty of destinations currently open to American travelers and more opening soon. Travelers can start planning their next getaways using the guidance of trusted travel advisors and booking airlines and resorts with enhanced protocols. United Airlines is a great example of quickly adapting to the new needs of travelers through multiple initiatives that create confidence in getting away from it all.
Dedicated to delivering industry-leading cleanliness, United Airlines has created their CleanPlus commitment to put your health at the forefront of the travel experience. Partnering with Clorox, United delivers the standard in sanitizing aircrafts. This includes basics like disinfecting high-touch areas, reducing touchpoints, and ensuring (and sometimes exceeding) the CDC guidelines for aircraft cleaning standards. The proof is in the awards. United CleanPlus program was the first of the four largest American carriers to be awarded Diamond status by APEX Health Safety for their cleanliness and sanitation efforts.
Yet this is just part of the solution. United is going even further, including being the only U.S. airline to employ a full-time, on-sight medical director, using electrostatic sprayers to disinfect the gate areas, and rolling out touchless check-in processes and touchless lavatories at select airports and aircrafts. They’re also testing even more innovations including artificial intelligence to help with temperature screenings, evaluating biometric boarding pass options, and testing UV sanitation deployed by drones and hand-held wands.
