With the current risk of Ebola spreading from West Africa airlines are looking at ways of reducing passenger concern.
For many years cruise companies have insisted on disinfectant dispensers on entering a dining area, ships prone to outbreaks of contagious bugs. This could be the norm for the future with airlines.
AddSatize has come up with a product that not only safeguards passengers, airport and airline staff, but could be a revenue generator too.
The AddSatize dispenser can be positioned at the security boarding pass check point (and similar staff gates) requiring every person to put their hands into the machine.
What makes the unit unique is the advertising screen which can sponsor a product or service, with a positive company image of clean hygiene and community care. As AddSatize says “we are all in the fight against spreading bacteria”. As an airport service it can offer airline and departure gates information.
With the Ebola outlook travellers are concerned. From schooldays we are all aware of catching the common cold and minor bugs with relatively negligible results. Airlines will for the future need to be far more aware of the havoc that could be caused by carrying serious germs. Airports will need to take reasonable precautions. www.addsatize.co.uk
