Worried about the air you breathe when you travel, go out to eat, sit in a long meeting or even when you go to your doctor’s office? If you’re worried about catching COVID-19, or any virus for that matter, then I highly recommend getting Wynd Plus. It’s a portable air purifier with HEPA filters, about the size of a water bottle.

Wynd Plus ($199 and includes free shipping) creates a bubble of purified air around you by filtering, dust, allergens, smoke, and pollution from your personal space. And because of COVID-19, I now use it on the plane, in hotels and during meetings. FYI: Use promo code “JOHNNYJET” to get 10% off your Wynd personal air purifier.

I learned about Wynd from my good friend Mike Freed, who is the managing partner of Post Ranch Inn. Post Ranch Inn is located in Big Sur and is arguably the nicest hotel in America; it’s no surprise that it’s often frequented by celebrities.

When the pandemic hit, business for the A-List hotel really suffered, like pretty much everything and everyone in the hospitality and dining industry. Post Ranch’s Sierra Madre restaurant, exclusive only to hotel guests and once very popular, became a ghost town. But when things started opening up again, Mike partnered with Wynd to provide clean personal air in the restaurant. He purchased one of these powerful portable air purifiers, which
can be plugged in or run on an 8-hour rechargeable battery, for every table in the restaurant. He also purchased 10 larger purifiers and positioned them throughout the restaurant.

The Washington Post published an article about this state-of-the-art technology, which is really keeping people safe and putting them at ease. According to the article: “Since the setup, if successful, could potentially be utilized in other restaurants and indoor spaces, the Washington Post asked several experts on indoor air to review the restaurant layout and strategy. They agreed it should work to make the dining experience considerably safer, while noting 100 percent safety is unattainable.”

Considerably safer … that’s a big deal. I brought mine along on my flight from Los Angeles to New York for an extra layer of protection, even though the cabin air is filtered through HEPA filters.

I also brought it to my doctor’s office the other day for my annual physical and was shocked to see that the exam room didn’t already have an air purifier like so many doctor’s offices me and my kids have been to. Shame on UCLA for not taking better care of their staff and patients.

I used Wynd in my hotel room since there were no windows to open.

I used it when visiting my dad in a senior home, so we could eat dinner together worry-free.

And I used it in my Blacklane car service to the airport when it started to rain and we had to roll the windows up.

As their website says, Wynd Plus really is a powerful cleaning product in the palm of your hand. Update: I was told by my friend that “the best way to utilize the WYND is to keep them straight up and not pointed directly at you.” Here’s another article on Wynd’s benefits.

    Where in the world would a passenger traveling in economy put that?

      I put mine on my lap during takeoff and landing or you can hold it and then put the tray table down

    Nowadays, when we think about an air purifier, we are mostly interested in the Covid virus. I don’t see from any reviews of this product that this has been tested with the Covid virus. I understand that it will be useful especially for asthmatics to filter air that has smoke or other pollutants – even bacteria. But viruses? I don’t know whether that has been demonstrated as yet.

    I inquired with the airline I’ll be flying on in January and then said absolutely no no electronic powered purifying objects.

      Really. Which airline?

    Alaska Airlines told a passenger near us in first class back in October on a flight to the Big Island Hawaii to turn off an electronic air purifier, but don’t know if it was the Wynd brand or not.

      I’ve used it on four flights and two airlines and so far only FA’s have commented that they love it

  5. Denis Dyson|

    Johny, very disappointing after reading deeper.
    No doubt this may useful for dust and pollen, but any medical claims beyond that are unsubstantiated – (even the Washington Post article was hype-heavy and information-light)

    1. Johnny Jet|

      What are you disappointed about?

  6. Sandra|

    Alaska Airlines specifically prohibits personal air purifiers in carry on luggage. See their website for information.

    Just checked and United bans these also,

      I’ve flown with it multiple times on United and never had a problem
