ABM says the company continues to help the aviation industry build passenger confidence around safety and hygiene with its skills and expertise in cabin cleaning management. Antony Marke, group managing director for ABM’s UK aviation business, commented: “As airlines look to recover and rebuild, our focus is on helping them do that.”
“To encourage people to fly once again, passengers need reassurance that the aircraft is safe, clean and hygienic. With our unparalleled cabin cleaning services, we help create a positive passenger experience and provide best-in-class cleaning for any type of aircraft.”
Etihad Airways has demonstrated its health and hygiene processes through its Etihad Wellness programme. As part of the agreement and what the company says is an industry first, ABM will support Etihad’s specially trained Wellness Ambassadors who offer reassurance to customers by sharing advice on travel wellbeing and details of the health and sanitisation measures that have been implemented throughout their journey through an online guide. The ambassadors can also be contacted round the clock via email by those needing more specific information and advice.
ABM UK established an Expert Advisory Council in 2020 that is composed of external leading experts in infectious disease and industrial hygiene. The council advises on many aspects of ABM UK’s business, including its proprietary EnhancedClean™ programme which delivers healthy spaces with a certified disinfection process.
The programme is designed to help clients return to their facilities safely and navigate change in a post Covid-19 world, delivering assurance to employees, customers and the public by demonstrating trustworthy cleaning and disinfection and includes consistent intervals of frequent high touch point and broad disinfection.
