Schedule Checklist

The aircraft cleaning schedule and checklist is an easy and effective way of demonstrating all equipment is regularly cleaned. It is a set of time-based instructions that describe everything that needs to be done in order to maintain the cabin and cockpit premises in a clean and sanitary condition. A cleaning schedule is basically just a daily, weekly, or monthly plan for how you will clean the aircraft and the checklist provides a list of items that need to be cleaned during the short transit stay or as scheduled cleaning over the night.

There are different types of interior cleaning, depending on time available; the following schedule and checklist is only an example, which may have to be adjusted to more specific operations. For operations having short flights, minimum service and short turnaround time, the requirement for cleaning between reactors are limited to very few of the procedures mentioned in the chart below.
