This story is part of AIN's continuing coverage of the impact of the coronavirus on aviation.
Jet card and aircraft management provider Jet Linx has begun applying the Bioprotectus System to its aircraft and at its network of private terminals. The system developed by ViaClean Technologies has been proven by two Centers of Excellence of the Global Virus Network to eliminate and provide protection against SARS-CoV-2, the unique coronavirus that causes Covid-19, for more than six weeks.
“Safety is always our utmost priority and there has never been a more significant impetus to utilize groundbreaking technologies such as the Bioprotectus System to safeguard our clients, flight crews, and ground personnel,” said Jet Linx president and CEO Jamie Walker. “We…believe that our ongoing application of the Bioprotectus System will enable us to navigate the road to recovery more confidently and rapidly.”
Jet Linx claims it is the first aviation operator to use the system that includes disinfectants, antimicrobial surface protectants, air filters, and hand sanitizers. In addition to using the system on its fleet and facilities, Jet Linx has installed Bioprotect hand purifier dispensers in its 19 private terminals and offers the product aboard its aircraft.
