As European travel ‘takes off’, Sagrotan joins forces with Eurowings to give crew and passengers the products and training they need to stay safe
The travel industry has been significantly impacted by the pandemic. Eurowings needed a comprehensive hygiene concept and the support of a trusted disinfectant brand to get travellers back in the air. Enter: German’s number one expert in disinfection1 Sagrotan.
In an exciting new partnership, Sagrotan and Eurowings will be joining forces and giving crew members and passengers peace of mind when taking to the skies.
From August, the new partnership will:
- Provide all Eurowings passengers receiving a Sagrotan disinfectant wipe to start their journey which kills 99.9% of bacteria and viruses
- Equip Eurowings check-in areas at Cologne and Düsseldorf, Germany with Sagrotan hand sanitiser dispensers
- Give passengers the opportunity to purchase the popular Sagrotan disinfectant hand gel via the Eurowings in-flight magazine
Approximately half of German travellers surveyed using the ‘Reckitt Global COVID Tracker’ 2 said that thanks to the partnership with Sagrotan, they would now consider flying again with Eurowings. The partnership has also doubled the number of passengers who now feel comfortable travelling by air.
