COVID-19: 3M and Safran Partner For Cleaner Aircraft Interiors
In light of the global COVID-19 pandemic, 3M and Safran Cabin are bringing together their innovative strengths and technologies in a partnership to design cleaner aircraft interiors.
Known for its multiplatform technologies and efforts to fight against COVID-19, 3M will leverage its deep roots in innovation by providing technologies to help design cleaner aircraft cabin interiors for ‘Travel Safe' – a joint initiative of Safran Interior companies.
The solution will verifiably elevate the hygiene of aircraft interiors and help restore passenger confidence and promote a recovery.
Safran will certify 3M technology that enhances cleaning and protection features of aircraft cabin equipment and provides the capability to mitigate or improve the removal of bacteria and viruses, including SARS-CoV-2.
These solutions can be permanently embedded into aircraft interior surfaces during the manufacturing process, or they can be applied to upgrade existing interiors.
The exclusive partnership will leverage the research capability of both companies to realize a shared vision for seamless, safe, and stress-free travel. It's expected that these new aerospace materials will be available in 2021.
