Lichtenfels, 12.10.2020 | The second wave of COVID-19 is here, but aviation cannot survive more months of grounded flights. We need to install comprehensive safety procedures to reassure passengers and governments that it is safe to fly. Fortunately, this time we are prepared.

A revolutionary new hygiene concept – purify from aviationscouts – allows us to do that. Purify is a four-step process that ensures passengers and crew arrive and depart safely.

Step 1 spreads disinfecting fog around airports and aircraft, which continues to actively disinfect for more than 10 days between treatments.

Step 3 is a six-second hand-disinfection station that provides passengers with more than two hours’ protection, but that can be safely reapplied again and again, from when they arrive at the airport, through check-in, travel to their aircraft and the flight itself.

Step 4 involves personal protective equipment, for passengers and crew, that can be branded for ancillary revenue.

Let’s talk about Step 2 in more detail. It involves a disinfection and cleaning concentrate that can be mixed into a dilute form and sprayed, or comes available in ready-to-use spray bottles or wipes. This makes it ideal for topical areas, such as washrooms and toilets.

A conventional disinfection solution is alcohol-based and evaporates soon after use leaving the surface open to reinfection within minutes. Purify’s disinfectant is different. It is water-based and on drying leaves a sponge-like gel on the surface embedded with powerful biocides that continue to kill micro-organisms for up to 10 days after application.

The solution also prevents micro-organisms from attaching to it, further ensuring reinfection. Continued use of the disinfectant builds up a nano-thin layer that increases that non-stick barrier layer even more.

“Disinfecting a surface is easy. Keeping it disinfected is more difficult,” says aviationscouts sales manager, Christophe Hafhouf. “As soon as you have cleaned a surface it can easily become reinfected by floating micro-organisms in the air.”

“Our German-made and industry-leading disinfectant ensures that even after treatment, surfaces will stay hygienic for days afterwards. This not only keeps people safe, it will also reassure governments that airports and aircraft are safe to keep operating.”
