Delta announced they have teamed up with the makers of Lysol to develop better hygiene and disinfection protocols for high-traffic areas in airports and on board their planes.
According to Reuters, the collaboration will see Delta use Lysol’s disinfectant spray and wipes. The airline will also team up with Lysol’s microbiologists and germ-kill experts to research and develop new disinfecting solutions – with a focus on airplane toilets first!
