Our commitment to health and safety.

 

In response to COVID-19 we have thoughtfully reimagined every touch point to ensure a clean, safe and healthy environment for our guests and employees, while continuing to deliver on our vision of great people providing a legendary aviation experience. Beginning May 1, we are implementing the CleanCheck Standard throughout our fleet and at all Clay Lacy Aviation locations.

Raising the bar on clean.

CleanCheck Standard is a comprehensive initiative that incorporates CDC, DOT, and FAA recommendations with best practices from across the aviation industry to improve every facet of Clay Lacy Aviation operations. Every protocol is proactively designed to eliminate touch points and thoroughly sanitize environments.

1. Booking and preflight

  • Passenger and crew health declaration and travel history screening
  • No contact passenger temperature screening
  • Extensive cleaning for ground vehicles and valet
  • Additional food handling procedures and protocols for on-board catering
  • Supplemental guidelines for international flights
  • Modified crew overnight procedures

2. Aircraft operations

  • Complete aircraft sanitization prior to boarding using EPA-certified and aviation-approved cleaning products
  • Crew Personal Protective Equipment (PPE) requirements and availability for passengers
  • Social distancing guidelines and telemedicine on call
  • Enhanced aircraft decontamination services and cleaning processes using bipolar air ionization and antimicrobial barrier application

3. FBOs and facilities

  • Personal Protective Equipment (PPE) used by employees and available for guests
  • Enhanced cleaning three times daily
  • Modified lobby and passenger arrival protocols
  • New air purification technologies in guest lounge and common areas
  • Aircraft decontamination and cleaning before and after maintenance servicing

What to expect on your next flight.

While the CleanCheck Standard encompasses many changes you may never see, here are five things you will notice on your next flight.

  1. Clay Lacy employees, including crew members, will be wearing personal protective equipment that includes face coverings and gloves.
  2. You will be asked to complete a Health and Travel History Declaration before boarding the aircraft, and we will check passenger temperatures using a no contact thermometer.
