Corsair has become the first European Airline to sign a partnership with Adhetec for anti-microbial covers for the tray tables of its aircraft.

    On 29 September Corsair operated a test flight from Paris Orly to Abidjan on the Ivory Coast. All of the tray tables of the business, premium and economy class seats were be equipped with a protective aeronautical film developed by Adhetec, which uses the natural and antimicrobial technology of its partner Pylote, a specialist in mineral and ceramic industrial chemistry.

    Corsair technical and fleet director, Enea Fracassi, said: We are very proud to be the first airline in Europe to implement this innovative film technology, which complements the range of on-board hygiene measures already in place for the comfort of our customers.

    “Indeed, the combined protective action of the film and its antimicrobial technology meet the expectations of our customers and reassure them. Making our customers travel in optimal sanitary conditions is one of our company’s priorities.”

    The company claims that this technology has demonstrated its effectiveness against bacteria and viruses, and in particular against Coronavirus. In addition, the natural and mineral Pylote microspheres in the protective adhesive film remain safe for the skin, ever for young children, and do not release any toxic molecules into the atmosphere. The whole Corsair fleet will progressively be equipped with the antimicrobial film.

    Furthermore, the antimicrobial surface protection film offered by Adhetec protects the tray tables from possible damage caused by aggressive disinfectants products used under current sanitary protocols, without losing its decontaminating power. Indeed, the antimicrobial varnish surface remains extremely resistant.

    The films have an immediate, stable and permanent 24/7 microbial decontamination action thanks to a virtuous process, without any loss of effectiveness over more than 50 months. It is resistant to repetitive cleanings and to the many touches of passengers without altering its action.
