World first: Istanbul Airport provides antimicrobial and antiviral uniforms to staff


Istanbul Airport has become the world’s first airport to provide its staff with antimicrobial, antiviral and antibacterial uniforms from supplier Keyvan Aviation.

The airport’s Hygiene Team, which is on duty 24/7 to check that strict Covid-19 measures are followed by passengers and staff to ensure their safety and wellbeing, have been supplied with a tailor-made outfit consisting of a shirt, trousers, jacket, waist bag and shoes.

In addition to being antimicrobial and antibacterial, these uniforms also offer comfortable, skin-friendly, breathable and anti-odor features.

Mehmet Keyvan, chief executive officer of Keyvan Aviation, said, “We are pleased to be serving one of the biggest airports around the world. We will continue to improve our products to keep air and ground crews happy.”
