Flydubai has begun using the latest version of a technology that tracks the cleaning cycles of each seat cover to help maintain the highest standards of in-flight hygiene and safety.

The latest RFIDAeroTrack software by Irish company, Aerospace Software Developments (ASD),  enhances efficiency by monitoring the cleaning of aircraft seat covers through technologically advanced RFID tags that are attached to individual seat covers to provide a unique identification, enabling the airline to keep track of the seat covers at every stage of the cleaning cycles and life span via RFID handheld scanners and labels.

 

Seat covers are scanned when removed from the aircraft and any seat cover that has reached its maximum number of cleaning cycles is taken out of service. The remaining covers are scanned again at the time that they are dispatched to the laundry, and tracked and labelled at various stages of cleaning, to keep track of their cleaning cycles and life span.

 

Mick Hills, senior vice president of engineering and maintenance at Flydubai said: “we are always looking for new and innovative ways to help us to improve efficiency. RFIDAeroTrack has provided a solution to help manage the cleaning of

our seat covers using the latest developments in technology and we look forward to the benefits that this service will provide.”
