RJ aircraft arriving from Wuhan undergoes complete sterilisation protocol

Posted 3 February 2020 · Add Comment

Royal Jordanian (RJ) conducted a complete sterilisation and disinfection procedure to its aircraft that returned from Wuhan to Amman on Saturday morning.

The aircraft was dispatched to evacuate Jordanians, Palestinians and Arabs residing in this Chinese city where the corona virus was said to originate.


The entire aircraft underwent the sterilisation process: seats, facilities and air conditioning; the best cleaning materials and equipment were used by a highly qualified team from a local company for the purpose.


The sterilisation and disinfection process went through three phases and took over two hours, following the international standards of the civil aviation authorities and Boeing’s protocol in this regard, which helps kill 100% of bacteria, virus and fungi.
