Plane Talking Products is launching a unique “viroblocked” ecosystem that aims to help airlines make a clear and distinctive offer to travellers based on a coronavirus-compliant management system.
The company has signed a worldwide exclusive deal with HeiQ for HeiQ Viroblock in the aviation sector.
Swiss-developed HeiQ Viroblock is a protective invisible antimicrobial layer that provides a continuous, long lasting self-sanitising effect to any surface or product, and is 99.99% effective against SARS-CoV-2 (the virus that causes COVID-19).
“Many airlines are struggling to convince the public that it’s safe to fly again,” says Alison Wells, co-founder and director of Plane Talking Products.
“We want to help change that. This breakthrough Swiss technology means airlines can provide the reassurances that passengers want, and travellers can have confidence in resuming air travel.
“It’s an industry game-changer, and we are the only company in this sector to offer HeiQ Viroblock and its end to end ecosystem. Common cabin items like blankets, pillows and headrest covers can all be infused with HeiQ Viroblock, offering protection for the life of most onboard products.”
Microbes, including bacteria and viruses, can persist on textile surfaces for days, weeks or even months. HeiQ Viroblock technology is said to be proven to destroy enveloped viruses including coronaviruses and bacteria in minutes and can be applied to any surface.
Carlo Centonze, CEO of HeiQ Group, said: “HeiQ Viroblock is a breakthrough innovation extending a special combination of advanced silver and cosmetic vesicle technology.
“As a leading textile technology company, we are pleased to give exclusive representation to Plane Talking Products / MSCS for original HeiQ Products in the airlines sector to extend our offering to helping the airlines and benefiting millions of passengers with our technology.”
