Following months on lockdown, millions of people are dreaming of their next holiday abroad.
While the aviation industry is certainly ready to welcome passengers back on board, airports and airlines should do everything they can to reassure customers that it is safe to do so.
Checking in, going through security, waiting in the departure lounge, and boarding the flight will feel abstract to those that have been at home during the COVID-19 lockdown.
Venturing outside to go to the supermarket or to a GP appointment can feel overwhelming, let alone the idea of jetting off on holiday. So, what can you do to help put passengers’ minds at ease?
Guide to Hygiene and Sanitation in Aviation
Ensuring that all spaces including plane interiors, waiting areas, reception desks, bathrooms, restaurants and other airport facilities are disinfected will help to prevent the transmission of viruses like COVID-19 and provide peace of mind for passengers.
Infection control experts agree that UV-C light, used by the T-800, is an important tool in the fight against viral outbreaks, such as COVID-19.
Our robot features a state-of-the-art germicidal UV lighting system that can eliminate viruses within seconds of exposure.

Although the government has provided clear guidance to anyone that suspects they are experiencing symptoms of COVID-19, many people are asymptomatic.
To reduce the risk virus transmission in indoor environments such as a plane or airport, a highly-effective disinfection process is needed.
We understand that the aviation industry runs on a tight schedule, which is not necessarily conducive to a thorough disinfection process.
The T-800 can disinfect large spaces such as bathrooms, waiting areas, reception desks or seating within seconds.
As soon as all passengers have disembarked the plane, the T-800 can be moved in to decontaminate the area.
Our robot has been specifically designed to be easy to use.
Any personnel can be trained to use the T-800 in four simple steps:
- First, the robot should be placed in the indoor area that needs to be disinfected.
- Next, the operator can connect to the robot using an app on a tablet device.
- Once the safety checklist is complete and the desired cleaning cycle has been chosen, the T-800 must be left in the enclosed space to complete the disinfection.
- Once complete, the robot can be moved to the next area.
It really is that simple.
Coronavirus survives on surfaces
Although research into COVID-19 is still underway, it has been determined that the virus could survive on certain surfaces.
A study by microbiologists in Beijing found that COVID-19 could survive and remain infectious on smooth surfaces including plastic, stainless steel, glass, ceramics, and latex gloves for up to seven days.
While this is not definitive, it is wise to treat every surface as though it has been touched by someone carrying the virus.
Your responsibility to keep staff and customers safe
Before the pandemic, the focus was very much on sustainability and reusable items.
Now, businesses are seeking to source environmentally-friendly disposable items where possible.
The aviation industry is no stranger to the concept of single-use items and for now, this remains the right direction in terms of safety.
Although the COVID-19 pandemic has changed the way many conduct their business, it has also paved the way for new technologies to be introduced.
The T-900 Disinfection Robot can help the aviation industry get back on its feet, or back in the skies.
