Disinfection robots are being used to clean airplane cabins after a recent study found that the typical cleaning agent is not strong enough. Avelo Airlines, which was founded by two MIT students in 2016, has been using these disinfection bots for about 3 years now and claims they cut down on preventable illness by up to 80%.
Avelo Airlines is using disinfection robots to clean planes. These machines are able to kill any bacteria, viruses and other harmful microorganisms that may have been left behind by passengers.
Avelo Airlines, one of three low-cost airlines that debuted in the United States last year, is making a major mark with innovative technologies.
Robots, to be precise.
Avelo has began deploying robots to clean its aircraft in order to battle the COVID-19 outbreak, which is diminishing but still present in several regions of the nation.
Last week, the airline launched an unusual alliance with Aero HygenX, a business that disinfects its aircraft fleet using cutting-edge autonomous ultraviolet light (UVC) robots. Aero HygenX is a pioneer in the field of self-contained UVC disinfection for the transportation sector.
RAY is the name of the robot.
What’s Hot Right Now
“In a statement, Avelo Chairman and CEO Andrew Levy stated, “We are pleased to be on the cutting edge of helping prevent the spread of COVID-19 and other infections among the flying public.” “Our Customers’ and Crewmembers’ safety and well-being are our top priorities. Our relationship with Aero HygenX strengthens this commitment by allowing us to deploy their cutting-edge disinfection technology on our planes and bases. RAY is a safer, quicker, more cost-effective, and more long-term solution than most other airlines’ chemical-based manual disinfection procedure.”
RAY is a self-navigating, tiny, lightweight gadget that employs motion-sensing technology to travel interior areas while cleaning surfaces with UVC light swiftly and securely. RAY is an environmentally friendly and emissions-free alternative to hazardous chemicals.
Avelo utilizes the RAY robots to disinfect its six Boeing Next-Generation (NG) 737 airplanes on a regular basis. RAY is also used to disinfect Avelo’s Crewmember (employee) workstations at the airline’s West Coast base at Hollywood Burbank Airport (BUR) in Los Angeles and its East Coast base at Tweed-New Haven Airport in Southern Connecticut (HVN).
“Aero HygenX CEO Arash Mahin commented, “We couldn’t be more delighted to announce that America’s first new airline in over 15 years is using RAY.” “Avelo’s collaboration with Aero HygenX will improve the airline’s aircraft and airport disinfection protocols, demonstrating the airline’s dedication to safety, dependability, and innovation.” We’re excited to continue working with Avelo as they expand their fleet, bases, customers, and crew members.”
