A breath of fresh air for helicopter travel
Leading UK VIP helicopter charter company, Apollo Air Services, has become the first in the UK to install Aviation Clean Air’s ionizing airborne purification units.
The new technology is proven to deactivate 99.4% of airborne virus including COVID-19, meaning passengers and crew can feel safe in the knowledge that the purified air they breathe, and surfaces that they touch during the helicopter flight, are safe.
The innovative technology means that the passengers are not required to wear masks or gloves and can sit back and enjoy their flight in full comfort. The Ionization Purification System operates through the aircraft’s existing environmental control system, and uses positive and negative ions to immediately improve interior air quality, eliminate odours and kill pathogens in the air and on surfaces, wherever they live throughout the cabin and cockpit, making the air even purer and safer than in a medical environment.
Steve Graham, Apollo Air Services, commented: “We’re delighted to be the first helicopter charter company to have this ground-breaking technology on our aircraft, which will allow our clients to travel with peace of mind that they aren’t putting themselves at risk of the COVID virus. We are seeing a growing demand for helicopter travel in the current landscape, where health and hygiene have become top priorities. Not only do helicopters provide a perfect, sealed bubble for clients to travel with close friends and family, but now we can also ensure the air they breathe whilst onboard is free of the virus.”
