dnata has partnered with the Disinfect Group and Ecas4 Australia to launch a safe, highly efficient and environment-friendly baggage disinfection service at Singapore Changi Airport.

Passengers arriving at Changi Airport’s Terminal 3 can have their baggage quickly and safely disinfected before leaving the airport. Disinfect Group’s advanced equipment creates an almost invisible mist that is 100% natural, non-toxic, bio-degradable and can effectively kill over 99.99% of bacteria and pathogens, such as coronavirus, on all types of baggage.

The mist technology uses Ecas4 Australia’s electrolyzed water that consists of two ingredients, salt and water, which are activated with an electrical process. It is proven to be significantly more effective than bleach without the hazards of irritation to the skin, eyes and respiratory systems, according to the company.

Elvis Crook, diversification director for Asia Pacific, dnata, said, “We are delighted to launch an innovative service to further enhance safety and customer experience across the Asia Pacific region. Our partnership with Disinfect Group and Ecas4 Australia will enable dnata to engage new customers beyond the airport, supporting businesses that work toward reopening. We are confident that the innovative mist technology, which is harmless to humans but effective in killing viruses and bacteria, will help companies provide additional peace of mind to customers and employees in a post-Covid world.”

dnata’s new service, launched on March 18, is currently available for passengers of all airlines at Changi Airport’s Terminal 3. The company plans to introduce the new service at other terminals and additional airports across the Asia-Pacific region in the second half of 2021. Services fees start from S$5 (US$3.70) per bag as an introductory price.
