The sky's the limit

Stepping up its approach to protecting passengers and employees from exposure to viral infection both on and off board, Alaska Airlines has ruled that super-antimicrobial substance, Byotrol be used across all aspects of its operation from ticket desks to aircraft cabins.
Byotrol is proven to kill germs and viruses including H1N1 (Swine Flu) and MRSA on contact, as well as forming a long-lasting barrier on any surface it is applied to, including hands, to prevent re-infection for many hours, says the company.
Alaska Airlines had used a Byotrol-based surface cleaner and sanitiser since 2008, but the outbreak of Swine Flu prompted them to issue kits containing Byotrol Hand Sanitiser and Surface Wipes to every department.
"Byotrol's non-toxic formulation and long-lasting germ kill abilities make it paticularly pertinent for use across the passenger transport and leisure arenas," says David McRobbie, CEO of Byotrol.
