Boeing named company veteran Mike Delaney to lead a Confident Travel Initiative that will work with the industry to develop solutions to help minimize air travel health risks during the pandemic and drive awareness of health safeguards already in place. Delaney has been with Boeing for 31 years and most recently served as vice president of digital transformation at Boeing Commercial Airplanes. The Confident Travel Initiative team will work with airlines, global regulators, industry stakeholders, flying passengers, infectious disease experts and behavioral specialists to establish industry-recognized safety recommendations. The team is also advising operators on existing, approved disinfectants that are compatible with the airplane flight decks and cabins and testing other sanitizers. “Air travel is coming back,” said Delaney. “As that happens, we want passengers and crews to board Boeing airplanes without hesitation.”
