United Airlines and Heathrow Airport Use UVC Light for Disinfection

Recently United Airlines and Heathrow airport unveiled their disinfecting measures with UVC light respectively. United Airlines is using UVC light to clean pilot flight decks while Heathrow deploys UV cleaning robots and UV handrail for disinfection within the airport.

 

United Airlines uses handheld, AUVCo blades from the American Ultraviolet company to kill any viruses that may reside on sensitive switches and touch screen displays within the flight deck. The company also applies electrostatic spraying to disinfect its aircraft cabins. This latest enhancement of using UVC lighting technology is another way United is working with its partners at the Cleveland Clinic to guide its policies and procedures on safety and cleanliness.
