Schiphol Airport offers UV-C light to passengers to disinfect personal belongings

Amsterdam Airport Schiphol has announced three sanitizing service locations, where passengers may disinfect their personal belongings such as their phone, passport and keys using UV-C light, the company said.

The Sanitising Service consists of four sections: in each section, passengers can disinfect their hands, clean items with moist wipes and use hand cream. There is also a place where passengers can disinfect their personal belongings using UV-C light and an area specially equipped for families. The family area makes it easy for parents and children to use the service, as it has been specially adapted in height and made appealing to children.

At these service points, the hand gel is made of Dutch tulip bulbs that are too small for cultivation. As a result, the hand gel is produced in a completely sustainable manner. The UV device is made in the Netherlands as well. A sanitising host will be present on a regular basis to welcome and assist users, such as when disinfecting items using UV-C light.
