Clay Lacy Aviation has reimagined every aspect and touch point for all operations to ensure a clean, safe and healthy environment today and for the future. Committing to new sanitizing and cleaning procedures and service protocols, Clay Lacy has designed and implemented its CleanCheck Standard to provide customers and guests the highest level of confidence in their safety and health for each phase of the flight experience. The CleanCheck Standard was carefully developed to eliminate the spread of COVID-19 and other diseases by evaluating, cross-referencing and implementing new technologies and the best practices from the Centers for Disease Control (CDC), U.S. Department of Transportation (DOT), Federal Aviation Administration (FAA), aircraft manufacturers and other industries.
“Health and safety is always our first priority,” said Brian Kirkdoffer, President and CEO, Clay Lacy Aviation. “We examined every department, facility and process and asked how we could thoughtfully change to provide the absolute safest service and environment for our clients, guests and employees during COVID-19 and beyond.”
Enhanced Aircraft and Facility Cleaning and Sanitizing
The CleanCheck Standard incorporates the use of advanced bipolar ionization technology and antimicrobial barrier application, in addition to EPA-registered and aviation-approved products to deliver a clean, safe and healthy environment for guests and employees. Aircraft are cleaned and disinfected after each flight, and facilities are receiving increased cleaning frequency. Bipolar ionization machines produce no ozone, while killing surface and airborne pathogens, sterilizing bacteria and mold, removing pet and cooking odors, reducing static electricity and neutralizing common industrial gasses. ClearCabin antimicrobial barrier is an odorless, colorless product applied to surfaces, and provides 90-day protection from bacteria, fungi, yeast and algae from attaching to surfaces.
New Protocols for Pre-flight, In-Flight, and Post-Flight Experience
Each touch point has been thoughtfully reevaluated, and new processes put into place to protect Clay Lacy guests and employees. This includes pre-flight health and travel declarations, temperature screening, luggage handling and personal protective equipment for our crew members. There is also extensive coordination and auditing of partners for catering, ground transportation and crew accommodations. Clay Lacy has analyzed every aspect of its operations and incorporated new protocols that meet or exceed best practices while providing an exceptional aviation experience.
