Daily

Airlines are taking an aggressive approach to disinfecting airplanes in the wake of the coronavirus outbreak.

Delta Air Lines’ check-in kiosks, ticket counters, gate areas, jet bridges, off-site check-ins, Need Help Centers and Baggage Service Offices are being wiped down with disinfectant multiple times a day.

All Delta customer service areas are increasing cleaning schedules and making supplies readily available to agents for spot or more frequent cleaning. Delta is giving hand sanitizer to agents working at ticket counters, gates, Sky Zones, Need Help Centers and Baggage Service Offices.

Sky Club operations have been consolidated, shower service discontinued and food and beverage scaled back. In addition, the airline is also cleaning Sky Clubs throughout the day and sanitizing them each night using hospital-grade disinfectant confirmed to kill the COVID-19 virus.

Many Delta planes have state-of-the-art air circulation systems combining fresh outside air sterilized with a high-temperature compressor and ozone purifier, with existing cabin air recirculated through an industrial-grade HEPA filter.

United Airlines said most of its planes also have HEPA filters and circulation systems similar to those found in hospitals, which remove up to 99.7 percent of airborne particles.

The airline is also disinfecting common surfaces in terminals, providing hand sanitizer for employees in crew and break rooms, in lounges and at gates. For passengers requiring a wheelchair, the airline is wiping down all touch points, including push bar, brake handle, armrests, seat cushion and foot bar after every use. Each day, it sprays a sanitizing disinfectant on all surfaces.

Look for Unique Museums Filled with Fascinating Artifacts Wherever you Travel

Museums beckon wherever we go. They amuse and enlighten travelers and bring to public attention historical, artistic, scientific and natural wonders. Most are thought-provoking and educational, stretching our minds and our knowledge of the world. Some, however, stand out as just plain quirky: personal and sometimes whimsical collections, museums dedicated to a unique skill or long- forgotten industry, arcane collections originally designed for scientific study. Others devote their space to sharing a subject that represents one person’s consuming passion.

Savoy Palace Hotel Review

Savoy Signature Hotel Group continues to generate a buzz in international hospitality about the way its diverse portfolio shapes Madeira’s future as a destination; the brand keeps existing fans (particularly the traditional group of older British and German visitors) interested while drawing younger, more active travelers beyond the confines of Europe. The Savoy Palace, opened in 2019, took on the “legacy” mantle of a predecessor (the former Savoy Hotel) that stood on the same site, and then reopened with a lot of enthusiasm after the height of the pandemic passed.

Travel-Themed Movies and TV Series Take us on Journeys Real or Imagined

The Namib Desert, 1992. After hours of driving across parched African emptiness, we reached an oasis of trees and shade surrounded by giant red dunes. Two dozen trucks arrived there before us, along with RVs, tents and tables. Power lines webbed the whole makeshift encampment. Generators and air-conditioners hummed. People bustled around. Attention seemed to focus on a particular tree in the middle distance. I aimed my binoculars and saw more people, a line of empty directors’ chairs, a movie camera, reflectors, a sound boom ... and Reese Witherspoon.
