Virgin Atlantic and Delta airlines have awarded ABM a contract to provide cabin secure cleaning services across their fleet of aircraft.

    The contract for both began on 1 September 2020 and will include Virgin’s fleet based at Heathrow. It will extend to include Virgin Atlantic’s Manchester Airport operation once it recommences in November 2020.

    ABM‘s group managing director, Antony Marke, said: “During this period of uncertainty, we’re supporting our clients with recovery and helping them to regain the public’s confidence to fly again, and to keep flying by delivering clean airports and aircrafts.

    “Our unparalleled cabin cleaning services help create a positive passenger experience and provide best in class cleaning for any type of aircraft, which is vital right now.

    “We’re delighted to be chosen as the provider of cabin secure cleaning for Virgin and Delta Air Lines. We offer a combination of a long-standing reputation for excellence in airport services and world-class facilities expertise that ABM has developed within the UK and globally throughout its 110-year history.”

    In addition to cabin cleaning services, ABM’s UK aviation team’s expertise includes mobility and VIP passenger services, ambassadors, passenger bussing, logistics and ground handling.

    Virgin Atlantic manager of cabin appearance and cleaning, Anthony Bryant, added: “The health and safety of our customers and our people has always been our number one priority. As we start to return to our full flying schedule, the cleanliness and presentation of our cabins remains our absolute focus.

    “Virgin Atlantic is delighted to be partnering with ABM in the UK. Dedicated to applying and delivering to the highest of standards, we are excited to work with the team to ensure a continued industry leading cleaning programme across our fleet.”
