Clean’s introduction at JFK Terminal 7 marks a significant milestone in the travel industry’s ongoing efforts to combat the spread of infectious diseases and offer travellers a quick, turn-key solution to sanitize their baggage before bringing it home with them.

Rodney Jones, CEO of Clean said: “We are honoured to partner with JFK’s Terminal 7 to bring Clean’s innovative sanitization technology to one of the world’s busiest and most iconic airports.

“As passengers return en masse to traveling the globe freely, it’s crucial that we implement safe, effective solutions to maintain passenger confidence and ensure a healthier travel experience for all.

“Clean will allow passengers to sanitize their baggage after every flight. Simply gather your luggage from the baggage claim carousel, drop your bags at the Clean machine, and within seconds your bag will be sanitized – because what you bring home with you matters!”
