BAE Systems and Quest International of the UK have combined to launch a cabin-air system that can destroy airborne viruses and bacteria, including swine flu, Sars, bird flu and E. coli. AirManager has been flight tested on BAE 146/Avro RJ regional airliners operated by five European carriers, and has been selected by one for its fleet. BAE holds an STC to fit the system to the 146/Avro RJ series, as well as for the Boeing 757, and is willing to seek an STC for other aircraft types, including business jets. AirManager uses a contained electrical field to break down the molecular structure of airborne pathogens, contaminants and toxins and destroys them. It also eliminates smells in the process.
