Dettol antibacterial hygiene wipes will be distributed in the cabin on British Airways

British Airways announced that starting in March, passengers will have access to a range of Dettol hygiene products, that are proven to kill 99.9 percent of bacteria and Coronavirus, in the cabin and on the ground.

The airline’s updated cleaning protocols using Dettol products, have been supported by the London School of Hygiene and Tropical Medicine.

At Heathrow Terminal 5 Dettol hand sanitizer stations will be positioned at all check-in desks, self-service bag drop, lounges and at departure gates, replacing the current stations with Dettol products. The airline will also use Dettol antibacterial wipes, cleaners and sprays to keep surfaces clean at the airport and in its lounges.

In the cabin, British Airways will be introducing a Dettol antibacterial hygiene wipe. Each passenger will receive a packet containing the wipe as they board the aircraft.

“As we look forward to welcoming our customers back on board, we are proud to announce our partnership with Dettol, a trusted and well-known disinfection brand,” said Carolina Martinoli, British Airways’ Director of Brand and Customer, in last week’s announcement. “At the start of the pandemic, we introduced a number of protective measures at each step of the customer journey, and we think our partnership with Dettol is a great addition.”

Rahul Kadyan Executive Vice President of Global Business Solutions for Reckitt Benckiser (RB) added: “Our collaboration with British Airways is exciting, since we both share the same objective to help protect travelers. This is an ideal partnership for RB, and Dettol, to help drive high standards in hygiene and reassure consumers they can enjoy the British Airways experience. Our brand is built on trust, scientific efficacy and our desire to educate consumers around the world to help break the chain of infection.”
