Lavatory Upgrades, August 2020

Diehl Aviation has launched a product innovation initiative — dubbed Cabin Confidence Concept — addressing the operational challenges that airlines are facing in the post-coronavirus environment, as well as health concerns of the travelling public.

Diehl Aviation has identified three fields of competence in its portfolio that will help to enable airlines and to enhance passenger well-being on board. Firstly, Diehl Aviation will apply its expertise in environmental control systems to optimize air circulation and humidity in the cabin, as well as disinfecting and purifying the air on board. Secondly, the company has been working for some time on numerous touchless features for the aircraft cabin, particularly for lavatory environments, in order to enhance hygiene on board. Lastly, UV-C technology will be applied as tool for disinfecting surfaces, and for water purification.

Based on these competences, Diehl Aviation is now working on specific product solutions that will be available to the market as soon as possible. In addition, the company offers features for immediate applications such as flight-ready disinfectant dispensers, coronavirus placards for cabin hygiene and hands-free lavatory handles.
