MAC Aero Interiors, a subsidiary of Magnetic MRO, an Estonian provider of aircraft technical care, has launched the production of sanitising kits designed for airports and airlines in a move which is aimed at tackling both the virus itself and the resultant fear of air-travel.
In the light of the Coronavirus crisis and reactions to the changing perceptions towards flying and personal health safety, MAC Aero Interiors, consulted by medical staff, has developed specialist sanitising kits for use by passengers and aircraft crew members.
“As aviation is facing unprecedented times and, as a part of the industry, we would like to soften the impact faced by airlines and passengers. The resumption of travel is the main factor that will have an effect on the current situation and will allow the industry to recover from the crisis. Thus, to encourage air-travel again, we are ready to contribute to making flying as safe as possible and helping to ensure passengers of their safety,” states Marko Männiste, head of manufacturing at MAC Aero Interiors.
Personal Protective Equipment (PPE) kits will come with certificates and individual packaging, thus maintaining the items’ sterility, and these can also can be branded and customised according to customers’ needs. Handing out protective kits to every arriving passenger at the airport, with airlines giving them to passengers at the airport during the check-in process, or even being delivered to passengers’ home addresses, are measures that could be implemented worldwide to play a vital role in both combating the spread of the virus and the restoration of confidence in air transport, says the company.
