Qatar Airways becomes the first global carrier to operate Honeywell’s Ultraviolet (UV) Cabin System version 2.0, further advancing its hygiene measures on board.

The latest version of the Honeywell UV Cabin System that is owned and operated by Qatar Aviation Services (QAS), has been introduced to add flexibility, improve reliability, mobility and ease of use compared to its predecessor, with extended UV wings that treat both narrow and wide areas on board, reducing the overall disinfection time. This version also includes a hand wand that disinfects areas like the cockpit and other smaller spaces and is non-motorised leading to less battery consumption. In clinical tests, UV light has been shown to be capable of inactivating various viruses and bacteria when properly applied.

After receiving 17 units of the latest version of the Honeywell UV Cabin System V2, the devices have all undergone comprehensive testing on board Qatar Airways’ aircraft. The airline aims to operate them on board all aircraft turnarounds at Hamad International Airport (HIA).

Qatar Airways Group Chief Executive,. Akbar Al Baker, said: “As the first global airline to operate the latest version of the Honeywell UV Cabin System V2 on board our aircraft, it is significantly more user friendly and technologically advanced. QAS has continued to maintain our impeccable service during the outbreak of COVID-19, specifically supporting with repatriation flights and increased cargo workloads.

“As the first global airline in the world to achieve the prestigious Skytrax 5-Star COVID-19 Airline Safety Rating, the first airline in the Middle East to begin trials of the innovative new IATA Travel Pass ‘Digital Passport’ mobile app, and most recently, the first airline in the world to operate a flight with fully vaccinated crew and passengers – it is in our core to continuously be at the forefront of innovation, and to keep implementing the latest safety and hygiene measures on board and on the ground.”

GA Telesis has expanded its Tarmac Solutions Group inventory with the latest version of Honeywell’s UV Treatment System.

The new version is lighter and easier to navigate within aircraft cabins. Other enhancements include a handheld wand and increased mobility, allowing access in the confined areas of the cockpit and lavatories. These latest features can now also be applied to other transportation modes outside of aviation including bus, rail, cruise liners, and automobiles. In some cases, when compared with other products on the market, the UV Treatment System can deliver results that are up to 80% more cost-effective per application with no chemical induction.

“GA Telesis is proud to continue our long partnership with Honeywell in bringing this latest state-of-the-art technology to market as airlines rebuild their networks,” said Jason Reed, President of the Flight Solutions Group. “With the success of our initial agreement for the Honeywell UV Cabin System, we have no doubt this new product will be a hit with the industry and bring passengers back to airlines sooner than expected,” added Reed.

The Honeywell UV Cabin System is roughly the size of an aircraft beverage cart and has UVC light arms that extend over the top of seats and sweep the cabin to treat aircraft surfaces.

GA Telesis has secured a global distribution agreement with Honeywell for its UV Aircraft Cabin Cleaning system.

The technology will be distributed via GA Telesis’ Tarmac Solutions Group which is seeking to develop its specialised tooling and ground support equipment solution for airlines around the world.

“From the beginning of this pandemic, the GA Telesis Flight Solutions Group team wanted to be a part of the solution in getting people back on airplanes.  This new product helps do just that,”  said Jason Reed, President of the Flight Solutions Group.

Brian Davis, Vice President of Sales, Honeywell Aerospace. “This agreement with GA Telesis will help us more quickly and efficiently deliver this much-needed technology to airlines and operators across the globe with a trusted channel partner that has established airline relationships.”

The cabin system utilises Ultraviolet (UV) light to quickly traverse an aircraft cabin, galleys & lavatories in less than ten minutes. When properly applied, the new system reduces certain viruses and bacteria on airplane cabin surfaces and can assist in creating a cleaner environment for passengers and crew after the airplane lands and before each flight.

JetBlue is piloting Honeywell’s UV Cabin System, the first time the solution has been implemented by a US airline.

The Honeywell UV Cabin System can pass through an aircraft cabin in less than 10 minutes. Roughly the size of an aircraft beverage cart the system has UV-C light arms that extend over the top of seats and sweep the cabin to treat aircraft surfaces. JetBlue will evaluate the system’s place in its operation, while continuing other cleaning methods.

The airline has taken receipt of eight systems, which are being out into service as part of JetBlue’s Safety from the Ground Up program at two of the airline’s focus cities, John F. Kennedy International Airport in New York and Fort Lauderdale-Hollywood International Airport. These two locations kicked off a 90-day pilot program for JetBlue to evaluate the Honeywell solution.

“With the safety of our crew members and customers our first priority, JetBlue’s Safety from the Ground Up initiative is maintaining a layered approach to safety by ensuring healthy crew members, providing flexibility, adding space, reducing touchpoints, and keeping surfaces clean and sanitised,” said Joanna Geraghty, JetBlue’s president and COO. “As we look to add additional layers of protection by utilising cutting-edge technology, we have identified the Honeywell UV Cabin System as a potential game changer when it comes to efficiently assisting in our efforts to sanitise surfaces onboard.”

“JetBlue took an immediate interest in this new product when we demonstrated it for them just a few weeks ago, and now JetBlue is receiving our first systems,” said Mike Madsen, Honeywell Aerospace president and CEO. “We’ve ramped up production quickly on the UV Cabin System, and our company is working on a range of solutions to help make passengers more comfortable about flying.”

Dimer UVC Innovations and Honeywell have entered into a worldwide, exclusive license as part of a strategic partnership for Honeywell to produce, advertise and sell portable UV technology devices for use within the aerospace industry.

Previously known as GermFalcon, the rebranded Honeywell UV Cabin System can treat an aircraft cabin in less than 10 minutes for just a few dollars per flight for midsize to large airline fleets.

The Honeywell UV Cabin System is roughly the size of an aircraft beverage cart and has UVC light arms that extend over the top of seats and sweep the cabin to treat aircraft surfaces. Properly applied, UVC lights deliver doses that medical studies find reduce various viruses and bacteria, including SARS CoV and MERS CoV. Results vary based on UV dosage and application, and no testing has been done specifically on protection against COVID-19.

“This offering is a big win for our airline customers, which are seeking affordable ways to clean their cabins effectively and quickly between flights,” said Mike Madsen, Honeywell Aerospace President and CEO. “Honeywell is working on a range of solutions to help make passengers more comfortable about flying.”

“Working with Honeywell puts this technology in the hands of a worldwide aerospace leader that can quickly deliver to airlines and other aircraft operators,” said Elliot M. Kreitenberg, Co-Founder and President of Dimer. “As the travel industry begins to recover, we know hospital-grade technology will ease passenger concerns, and that’s what we’re providing with this system.”

Honeywell is currently in discussions with multiple airlines and service providers for the UV Cabin System.
