Cabin disinsection

In accordance with the relevant directives of the World Health Organization (WHO), SWISS is required to take the precautionary measure of spraying its aircraft cabins with insecticide at certain destinations. This action prevents the spread of potentially life-threatening insect-borne tropical diseases such as malaria and dengue fever. The spray used contains a synthetic pyrethroid which is used in insecticides all over the world and which the WHO considers safe and recommends for such purposes.
