Guest Safety Spirit's commitment to Safe Travels includes a multi-layered approach to safety that requires all guests and team members to wear face covers. Each passenger accepts this policy as part of a health and safety survey before boarding the plane. All the aircraft in our Fit Fleet® use state-of-the-art High Efficiency Particulate Air (HEPA) filters that capture 99.97% of the particles and filter the air for contaminants every 3 minutes.
Between each flight, improved cleaning procedures focus on high-touch areas such as tray tables and armrests. Spirit also uses two EPA-registered fogging treatments. The first applies a safe, high-quality disinfectant that is effective against coronaviruses. The second uses an antimicrobial product that forms an invisible barrier on all surfaces that kills bacteria and viruses on contact for 30 days.
