Clean Commitment

Air filtration: HEPA filters on all mainline aircraft and most regional jets refresh the cabin air every two to four minutes.

Enhanced Cleaning: Cleaning and sanitizing kiosks, ticket counters, passenger service counters and baggage service offices.

Face Coverings: A face covering is required during flight but you can remove it to eat or drink.

Hand sanitizing stations: Adding PURELL Advanced Hand Sanitizer dispensers before security areas in select locations. Hand sanitizer will be available on all flights.

Ticket Counters: Locating agents at alternating work stations and turning off some kiosks to create more space.

Creating space: Encouraging physical distancing throughout the check-in and security areas.

Face coverings: Face coverings are required for all team members and travelers in the airport – where your trip begins, where it ends and where you connect.

Plexiglas shields: Installing commercial-grade shields at ticket counters.

Sustained surface protection: Starting to treat our planes with SurfaceWise, providing enhanced protection by sustained killing of 99.9% of viruses, including coronaviruses, on surfaces.

Touchless check-in: Select U.S. travelers can scan their boarding pass at the kiosk to automatically print bag tags.
