Oman Air this week announced that it was joining a long list of major aviation leaders who now use Virus-Guard’s disinfectant wipes.
Designed for protection against swine flu, H1N1, H7N9, Ebola, Mers and Zika, Oman Air’ staff members currently use the wipes to disinfect aircraft galleys, lavatories and door handles. “We are committed to maintaining a healthy and safe environment for our passengers and employees,” said Miguel Serra, Vice president of ground operations at Oman Air in a media statement.
“Our partnership with Virus-Guard helps to ensure that we are taking all of the necessary steps and precautions for swift and coordinated action against international health threats.” In February, Oman Air announced that its leadership was monitoring the Zika virus situation in South America, posting additional information on its website from the World Health Organisation and offering refunds and rebooking assistance to pregnant women scheduled to travel to the region. Virus-Guard disinfectant wipes are a ready-to-use product that provides long-term efficacy, and is an easy-to-use solution for eradicating germs.
The wipes contain benzalkonium chloride, sodium pyrithione and polycondenstaes, a combination commonly used in hospitals and other medical treatment facilities. The wipes do not contain aldehyde or phenol. “The number of infections by micro-organisms has grown tremendously,” said Alex, founder of Virus-Guard. “We are working diligently with our aviation industry partners to implement infection control measures and protocols. Our goal is to help these industry leaders to quickly adapt in order to continue to make customer safety their top priority.”
