The impact of the pandemic continues to be felt by many sectors of the economy as we enter the new year. The airline industry endured a painful 2020 as the pandemic diminished air travel demand by more than 90%. According to GlobalData, a marketing research firm, “no industry has seen a greater impact than airlines”. Though we have started to see aircrafts return to the sky, the travel and tourism landscape has been permanently transformed by the pandemic.

In an industry that often transports more than two million travelers daily, airlines have frantically searched for a sanitation solution that is effective in thoroughly disinfecting the air and surfaces both in the airport and airplane. In response, several new guidelines and precautions have been implemented to help mitigate the spread of the virus. Digital and contactless solutions are among the top new additions to airports. While these implementations are essential to the recovery of the industry, airports, and aircrafts could still carry the viruses through the air or surfaces. What is the best solution for airlines to better protect its passengers and crew?

Airlines have an opportunity to transform outdated cleaning and sanitation methods by taking advantage of modern-day technology and solutions to provide the best experience and safety for its passengers. According to market research, passenger numbers are estimated to reach pre-pandemic levels only after a couple of years. Philip Balaam, President of Inmarsat Aviation, believes “the crisis could prove a decisive moment for digital transformation in an industry that’s historically been behind the curve”. Balaam continues to predict that the industry will see new leaders emerge after COVID-19 because they took the steps to enhance capabilities.

Paerosol, successfully tested by US & Foreign Government Agencies, provides a new system with 99.9999% effectiveness in treating dangerous surface and air-borne pathogens. Unlike its competitors, the United States Defense Threat Reduction Agency successfully tested Paerosol against bio-agents including simulates of Anthrax and Ebola, common civilian and hospital pathogens such as Ecoli and Salmonella, antibiotic-resistant microbes, and viruses including H1N1 (swine flu), H5N1 (bird flu), and MRSA. 

Paerosol’s Dry Spray Technology™ is a complete and long-term solution that disinfects the cabin’s air and all surfaces that are touched within the aircraft. It acts as a gas to diffuse and fully disinfect the entire space, including fabrics, in just a few minutes.

The EPA-Certified solution works at the highest rate of efficacy to eradicate all surface and airborne pathogens, including COVID-19. Chief Executive Officer of Paerosol, Steve Gareleck, recently stated, “We provide airlines with a solution that will meet the new standards for the mitigation of COVID-19 spread but also a long-term method to maintain the highest levels of cleanliness on the surface and in the air. Our technology is an efficient solution that expedites the turnaround process, saving airlines valuable time and money.” Paerosol greatly enhances the safety of aircraft crews and passengers and provides the confidence travelers need to return to flying.
