Singapore Airlines Introduces a New Type of Antimicrobial Coating Service to the SilverKris Lounge

Airlines in and outside the country have joined forces in a worldwide effort to fight the COVID-19 outbreak and minimize damage or inconvenience to passengers amid the ongoing coronavirus pandemic crisis, airline industry officials said Friday

Singapore Airlines has recently introduced a new type of antimicrobial coating service to the SilverKris Lounge at Incheon International Airport as part of its long-term quarantine plan for COVID-19 infection control. The measure was carried out in conjunction with SDLab Korea, a company specializing in next-generation anti-bacterial systems.

The SD999 Antimicrobial Coating is based on SDLab Korea’s spike defender solution technology, which provides effective anti-bacterial effects for three to six months per antimicrobial coating.

The quarantine technology has been approved for safety by the Korean Ministry of Environment and has already been used at Singapore’s Changi Airport terminals since February. Singapore Airlines has ensured that the protective antimicrobial coating is present in the entire lounge, including the reception, cafe, bars, main hall, toilets, shower rooms and kitchen, to guarantee safer use of the lounge for its customers. 

“Singapore Airlines considers the health and safety of our customers its top priority and is implementing various preventive measures on board and on the ground to ensure a safe journey,” Xavier Ho, general manager at Singapore Airlines Korea, said. “We will continue to maintain a high-quality COVID-19 infection control and quarantine system to provide customers with a safe and pleasant customer experience.”
