AirAsia Shares Its Disinfection Procedure, Assures Passengers That Safety Is Top Priority
Author Avatar

AirAsia has shared its disinfection procedure in a bid to reassure passengers that the airline is prioritising their safety amidst the spread of the Covid-19 outbreak.

Coordinated by AirAsia’s maintenance operation controller (MOC), the procedure involves a cleaning team of 5 to 6 people, and takes up to two hours to complete at every aircraft night stop. It is carried out according to the Airbus Aircraft Maintenance Manual (AMM), and all disinfectant products are approved by the Public Health Authority and aircraft manufacturer.

In the advisory, AirAsia detailed the steps taken during the disinfection procedure, such as how the chemicals are applied and which areas of the aircrafts are affected.

AirAsia also highlighted the role of the High Efficiency Particulate Arresters (HEPA) filtration system installed in its aircrafts, which is said to be able to filter 99.999% of dust particles and airborne contaminants. According to the airline, these filters are on par with those used in hospital operating rooms and industrial clean rooms. As such, you can be assured that the air that you breathe during your flights is as clean as it can get.

AirAsia is not the only flight company in Malaysia to share its Covid-19 prevention measures and disinfection procedure to ease passengers’ minds. Malaysia Airlines (MAS), too, has released an extensive list of preventive measures that it has adopted to combat the spread of the Covid-19 outbreak.
