MHI RJ Aviation Group (MHIRJ) has signed an agreement to market Aero HygenX’s ‘RAY’ line of autonomous UV-C light cabin disinfecting products.
Under the agreement, MHIRJ will support Aero HygenX in marketing the RAY line of chemical-free disinfection solutions, including to approximately 1,300 CRJ Series operators.
The RAY line, which uses UV-C light technology proven by Aero HygenX to eliminate pathogens from cabin surfaces and air, will be offered to CRJ operators as an alternative cabin disinfection method. MHIRJ will include information about the Aero HygenX’s technologies within its technical publications.
Aero HygenX CEO, Arash Mahin said: “We are thrilled to have been selected by MHIRJ as an innovative cabin disinfection option for their valued CRJ operators. MHIRJ has a long-standing reputation for superior aftermarket care and service, and we are committed to enhance the daily operations of CRJ operators through the abilities of RAY. It’s especially rewarding to know that RAY products, which are manufactured in Ottawa, are now much more likely to be disinfecting a global fleet of Canadian-made aircraft.”
Based on tests conducted by Aero HygenX, RAY has the ability to disinfect a CRJ aircraft in as little as five minutes and can also be used to disinfect lavatory and cockpit areas. RAY has been optimised for various aircraft types and comes equipped with HygenX Stream, a customisable software that records and transmits usage data wirelessly to the cloud, providing valuable system health monitoring and status updates to the operator.
