Swiss robots kill virus on plane



UVeya, a start-up in Switzerland, has built a robot that uses ultraviolet rays to kill viruses on flights in the country.  This is seen as an attempt to reduce customers' concerns about flying as well as help the tourism industry have more ways to cope with the effects of the Covid-19 outbreak.

UVeya Company is cooperating with Dnata Airport Services Company (based in Dubai) to test this robot on Helvetic Airlines Embraer - an airline owned by billionaire Martin Ebner.

During testing, aircraft manufacturers will examine and study the effects of UV light on the interior of aircraft, which can fade after repeated disinfection, thereby assessing the effectiveness of using the robot.

 Mr. Jodoc Elmiger, co-founder of UVeya Company, said UV technology to kill virus has proven effective when used in hospitals and laboratories for many years.  Currently, UVeya Company has built 3 robots, and 1 of them is being tested on a plane of Helvetic Airlines at Zurich airport.

 The robot's sterilization cycle takes place at the aisle of the passenger compartment, lasts for 13 minutes, and it takes longer if the plane gets bigger.  It is hoped that with the above features, the aircraft manufacturers will sign a contract to buy robots priced at CHF15,000 (15,930 USD).
