Bangalore. 07 September 2020. To help ensure the safety and well-being of airline passengers, Honeywell has introduced its UV Cabin System. The portable ultraviolet-c light (UVC) system, when properly applied at prescribed doses, reduces certain viruses and bacteria on airplane cabin surfaces. Roughly the size of a beverage cart, the technology is a cost-effective and efficient method to treat mid-sized airline cabin in less than 10 minutes. It can easily be transferred on and off the aircraft to maximize fleet efficiency.

The COVID-19 pandemic has severely impacted the aviation industry, but gradually air travel is picking up. Airlines and airport authorities are implementing measures to ensure passenger safety and well-being, which include thermal temperature checks, social distancing measures, more thorough cleaning methods, and the adoption of Aarogya Setu app. With the Honeywell UV Cabin System, airlines can help improve passenger and crew confidence by using the same UVC technology that has been proven effective in the medical field for decades.

The UVC technology is part of a complete suite of products aimed at helping operators better protect passengers and crew.
