Our uncompromising focus in the Southwest is the welfare of our consumers and employees, and we track the coronavirus closely (COVID-19). During the evolution of this case, we regularly collaborate with professional personnel, the Centers for Disease Control (CDC), the World Health Organization (WHO).
The existing condition has stopped Southwest from canceling or halting flights or routes, and none of the 103 southwestern destinations officially identified by the CDC as Geo-risks. If there are any improvements to our procedures or processes, of course, we will promptly announce all the improvements that will allow you to retain confidence in South travel.
In keeping with an existing plan to include a safe, welcoming cabin atmosphere, Southwest Airlines aircraft are held. We spend more than six hours washing each aircraft at night, in addition to arranging through aircraft between flights. And we have strengthened our cleaning practices overnight from 4 March 2020.
Typically in washing facilities and a cabin cleaner are used with the permitted EPA, a medical-grade disinfectant. The application of the disinfectant in the hospital is being extended throughout the aircraft and used in the cockpit, on the deck, and in the bathroom. These measures conform with or meet the Centre’s guidelines.
Both of our aircraft are equipped with HEPA filters, which flush out airborne particulate content since dust is recirculated on board with fresh air. In many clinics, the same HEPA systems are used to boost air quality.
The aircraft are often equipped to work with a fresh air ventilation device from outside the aircraft. In a South West airplane that much of the time matches the air quality observed in the outside, both a traditional office building both related public location on the HEPA and air conditioning network are working together to maintain the highest air quality.
