Radisson RED joins AirZones’ mission to make Dubai one of the healthiest cities on earth – way before the 2040 target
“Radisson is making a stand as an innovator in the hospitality sector with its air quality assessment.”
RADISSON RED Hotel in Dubai Silicon Oasis has taken the bold step of monitoring its indoor air quality, with an air quality assessment from AirZones.
The first hotel in the UAE to formally consider its indoor air quality, Radisson RED is taking definitive steps to understand how to help guests enjoy an even better experience.
And having AirZones’ cutting-edge air quality monitoring technology at the DSO property, measure the quality of air guests, visitors and staff breathe over the last month, the property is now celebrating being awarded a FOUR STAR indoor air quality rating.
Stuart Birkwood, General Manager, Radisson RED Hotel Dubai, says: “This rating means we have great quality indoor air at our Silicon Oasis venue. We believe the guest experience should extend to the air we all breathe – and knowing our air has a four-star rating means we have a fantastic competitive differentiator – who would rather stay somewhere without an air rating, or with low quality air?”
Dubai-headquartered AirZones offers the world’s first Indoor Air Quality Star Rating™ standard. The start-up makes it easy to understand which venues have clean, safe air to breathe.
According to the World Health Organisation and the United Nations, air pollution is now responsible for 7.2 million deaths per year. Ensuring good quality clean air in venues such as hotels, offices, schools and homes is now imperative.
Birkwood adds: “We’ve always put guest comfort uppermost in our company aims and vision. Having an air quality assessment means we can proudly tell our guests and staff that Radisson is a healthy, comfortable environment. To us, this is a clear and simple differentiator.”
The hotel’s general manager underlined that delivering high air quality is another way to reassure guests the group is doing everything possible to ensure a clean, safe environment for all, on top of its world-class COVID-19 health and safety measures.
For business travellers, holiday makers and family guests alike, air quality makes the difference between having a good stay and a great stay. Air quality affects mood, cognitive ability, productivity and helps ensure a good night’s sleep, for example.
After monitoring the air at the DSO site for a month, the raw data was analysed, and an independent four star air quality rating given. AirZones is now offering advice on how to improve air quality even more, by advising Radisson RED how to remove any excess pollutants and further enhance the air quality for all.
AirZones spokesman and company co-founder, Chris Leighton says: “We’d like to congratulate Radisson for having the foresight to consider the quality of the air at this venue. And we ‘d like to congratulate them for receiving a four star rating.
“We are already being described as the ‘Trust Pilot’ of air quality. We’re delighted to be working with such a globally-renowned brand as Radisson in ensuring its clientele and staff enjoy high quality air. In doing this, Radisson RED is showing it truly cares about its guest experience and welfare – not to mention its staff health.
“Right now, this might be a step that’s seen by many as above and beyond the norm, but we are seeing growing public expectation of an air quality rating for everywhere they live, work, dine and stay. Radisson is making a stand as an innovator in the hospitality sector with its air quality assessment.”
More and more people in Dubai can now choose where to stay, dine, work and live, based on AirZones’ Indoor Air Quality Star Rating™.
Good air quality also means people are likely to stay for longer at any venue offering measured and trusted air quality.
With the WHO and UN both citing polluted air as the number one environmental threat to humanity, AirZones’ unique approach brings a novel way of addressing this pressing issue. By working with organisations to improve their air quality, it is hoped Dubai becomes one of the healthiest cities on earth – way before the 2040 target.
