Harrods meets the mark for NATA Safety 1st
Cleaning has been a vital part of the regime to keep Harrods' FBOs at Luton and Stansted running during the pandemic. NATA's Safety 1st standard is globally recognised, and the Harrods facilities are now up to scratch.
There could be bright spots ahead for the business aviation industry.
Read this story in our December 2020 printed issue.

Harrods Aviation has met all the required steps to reach the National Air Transportation Association's Safety 1st standard. The detailed and comprehensive cleaning regime and guidance have all been followed to ensure all visitors to Harrods' FBOs at London Luton and London Stansted are welcomed into a certified clean environment.

John Bool, technical and facilities director says: “Since March we have been working to constantly assess, review and improve our response to the COVID-19 pandemic. Cleaning, of course, has played a major part in the successful continued running of our FBOs. We had been following specific UK government guidance as well as processes and ideas shared within the Air Elite Network. The next step for us was to seek a globally recognised, aviation specific standard.

“The Safety 1st Clean standard was a very obvious choice. I urge all FBOs to look at and follow this standard as we all work to provide a safe environment for our visiting customers and staff. With the hard work of my team we are, I believe, the first in the UK to achieve this standard.”
