Fremont, CA: Wheels Up, the leading brand in private aviation, has launched Safe Passage, an enhanced safety and health program for its employees, customers, and partners with expanded guidelines in response to COVID-19 and today's ongoing public health concerns. The program, developed by the Wheels Up Safety and Operations leadership teams, is introducing new safety measures among others that were implemented at the onset of the pandemic and will evolve as new technology and innovations develop and in accordance with new medical and governmental guidelines. Wheels Up is committed to leading the private aviation industry by adopting Collective Go, a comprehensive COVID-19 screening, testing, and monitoring solution developed by Collective Health.
Safe Passage incorporates the already stringent safety procedures currently in place and outlines heightened cleaning, sanitizing, and disinfecting processes in the Wheels Up owned and managed fleet of over 300 aircraft and for all passengers and employees. The protocols also apply to the Wheels Up approved network of safety-vetted and verified operating partners complying with the outlined requirements. The program includes, but is not limited to, some policies:
"Since our inception, Wheels Up has been built on a commitment to safety," said Kenny Dichter, Founder, and CEO of Wheels Up. "Safe Passage is a tip to tail approach for maintaining a safe work and safe travel environment. With all of the measures we've identified, including the integration of Collective Go, we are reinforcing our commitment to your safety."
"Wheels Up is leading the private aviation industry with their efforts and commitment to health and safety, and we are proud to work in tandem with them as they continue to put safety first for their crewmembers, employees, members, and passengers," said Rajaie Batniji, Chief Health Officer at Collective Health.
