Jet Linx, a large jet card membership company, has announced that it is applying the BIOPROTECTUs System to disinfect and protect its fleet of 112 jet aircraft, private Base terminals and facilities throughout the United States. The BIOPROTECTUs System by ViaClean Technologies, encompasses an array of EPA registered and FDA compliant technologies that disinfects and inhibits the growth and spread of bacteria, fungi, algae, mold and viruses as well as provides long-term antimicrobial protection for 90-days.
“The health, wellbeing and safety of our clients, flight crews and ground personnel is our utmost priority, and that is why we made the decision to treat all our Jet Linx aircraft and facilities with the BIOPROTECTUs™ System. We expect to complete the initial application of the BIOPROTECTUs System by March 20th and, thereafter, we plan to reapply the System every ninety days, or sooner if warranted, in order to actively protect and inhibit the growth and spread of harmful germs,” said Jamie Walker, President and Chief Executive Officer of Jet Linx.
Jet Linx will also install BIOPROTECT Hand Purifier dispensers in each of its 18 private Base terminals and offer BIOPROTECT Hand Purifier inflight on its fleet of jet aircraft. The company says these client-only, Base terminal facilities offer a secure setting that is far more protected and private than any other terminal or FBO in the aviation industry.
An integral component in the system is BIOPROTECT, a water-based antimicrobial product that when applied to both porous and non-porous surfaces, creates a "highly durable protective shield that provides long-term antimicrobial protection that inhibits and prevents the growth and spread of bacteria, fungi, algae, mold and viruses."
“Jet Linx is dedicated to advancing safety efforts throughout the private aviation industry, and we are confident that the actions we have taken as a result of the Covid-19 pandemic will safeguard our clients, flight crews and ground personnel," added Mr Walker.
“Years of research, invention, development and commercial trials and sales have culminated in a series of patents and regulatory approvals that bring the BIOPROTECTUs system to the forefront of solving the full range of microbiological problems,” said Dr. Curtis White, PhD and Chief Technology Officer of ViaClean Technologies. “This is a system that provides quick kill and long-term control of microorganisms on products and on surfaces and meets sustainability and environmentally responsible guideline principles.”
The Jet Linx fleet includes light, mid, super-mid and heavy jets, which the company manages on behalf of the individual aircraft owners. The aircraft are based at 18 locations around the USA, from Atlanta, Boston, Chicago, Tulsa, Dallas and Houston with headquarters in Omaha. Jet Linx card members pay an initial fee and then an hourly rate.
