Aviation Industry Stands against Zika Virus by Implementing Cutting Edge Solution from Virus-Guard


Leader in Revolutionary Infection Control for the Aviation Industry Offers New Comprehensive Solution to Guard against Harmful Germs and Viruses

ISTANBUL – Virus-Guard, a leader in revolutionary infection control for the aviation industry, announced today the launch of its new nebuliser amid heightened concerns surrounding the impact of the Zika virus. Major aviation industry leaders, including Sharjah Aviation JV of Air Arabia, Flynas and Oman Air, are leveraging the company’s technology and disinfectant products to proactively implement infection control measures and protect both passengers and personnel.

Virus-Guard’s new nebuliser facilitates even, comprehensive and reliable surface disinfection for sustained effects. The lightweight device is easy to use and produces no moisture, eliminating the need to remove sensitive objects from the treatment area. Once the device is turned on, it can effectively disinfect aircraft within 9 to 25 minutes based on the aircraft’s size. Surfaces are disinfected for up to 10 days, providing protection against Ebola, Coronavirus, MERS, Zika virus and other dangerous germs, fungi, viruses and bacteria.

The nebuliser utilizes Virus-Guard’s proprietary non-alcohol-based disinfectant solutions. The solutions have been tested for their disinfecting efficiency, long-term anti-microbial effect and bio-compatibility and certified by leading organizations, including the German Society for Hygiene and Microbiology, Fresenius Institut and Bioservice Scientific Laboratories. Additionally, the solutions are approved for Airbus and Boeing aircrafts.

“Airlines have gone into defense mode, even offering free refunds or rebooking for pregnant women as concerns over the Zika virus continues to grow,” said Alex Sahni, chief executive officer of Virus-Guard. “Our goal is to provide aviation leaders who operate in the affected areas with a proactive solution to keep passengers and personnel safe. The Centers for Disease Control is recommending enhanced precautions and our solutions offer our aviation industry clients an effective course of action. Using the nebuliser demonstrates their commitment to customer safety and service not only during this health crisis, but for the long term.”

Since its launch, Virus-Guard has helped transportation companies across the globe create safe environments for its customers and employees and set new standards in in-flight safety. The company specializes in easy-to-apply products, which can be used widely and don’t require specially trained personnel. Its new nebuliser further confirms its commitment to the improvement of hygiene and guaranteeing clean and safe environments for its clients.
