Dnata is continuing to adopt the latest technologies to deliver the highest level of safety and value for airline customers and help them provide travellers with confidence and peace of mind throughout the entire journey.

In partnership with Uveya, a Switzerland-based technology company, dnata has successfully conducted a proof of concept and will take aircraft cleaning services to a new level by utilising ultraviolet technology to sanitise the cabin.

The handler's enhanced cabin cleaning service was trialled on board the aircraft of Swiss regional carrier Helvetic Airways. Uveya's cutting-edge solution uses UV-C rays to disinfect the interior of the aircraft, ensuring the safety and well-being of passengers and crew. During the cleaning process, an autonomous sterilisation robot emits concentrated UV-C light across the cabin. The device can effectively kill over 99% of bacteria and pathogens, such as coronavirus, in the air and on all surfaces in a few minutes, without the use of any chemicals.
