Jamco Corporation has revealed ‘Project Blue Sky’, a global clean aircraft cabin initiative between Jamco and its collaboration partners to develop and produce touchless, hygienic cabin interior products for the aerospace industry. The initiative seeks to increase cabin cleanliness and to alleviate passenger stress during air travel, both critically important factors for flyer confidence in the wake of the Covid-19 crisis.
Project Blue Sky includes the latest in hygienic and touchless air cabin technologies, including seats, cabin dividers and lavatories, as well as improved disinfection technologies for use throughout the cabin. According to Jamco the initiative is driven by a commitment to help ease the transition to a new standard of cabin cleanliness in the commercial aerospace industry.
The initiative includes the development of products such as the Clean Cabin Divider, a transparent seat divider fitted above the seat, which acts as a barrier to limit the potential transmission of germs and viruses. The divider was designed with consideration to passenger visibility and security, cost-effective header design, and passenger comfort.
In the lavatory, touchless products such as the Hands-Free Toilet Seat/Lid, Hands-Free Waste Flap, and Touchless Faucet all minimise contact in high-touch areas, reducing the possible spread of germs between passengers and crew, as well as reducing the need for disinfection by crew.
Jamco is also pursuing the development of UV disinfection technology. Ultraviolet rays have been proven to destroy the DNA structure of viruses and bacteria, thus preventing the spread of diseases. Jamco’s UV disinfection concept includes installing human-safe UV technology in lavatories, galleys and seating areas to enable disinfection and germ elimination during flight.
