PODCAST 25: The inside story for safer cabins

This week's TIMES Aerospace podcast for the African and Middle East aerospace, defence and aviation market takes a look at changes in the cabin that should affect passenger confidence and safety.

Roger Patron from the UK’s completions company RAS – an interiors business known for its work on head of state cabins, most recently with two West African countries – has turned its attention to commercial aircraft cabins and developed a shield which sits between seats and protects fellow passengers from droplets that could escape masks.

Already one Gulf carrier has sets being trialled on an aircraft.
 
RAS’s Roger Patron explains the background to the protectors and how they work. In last week’s programme we heard that Flydubai – the UAE hybrid carrier – has introduced RFID (radio frequency identification) tracking on its seat covers to monitor the cleaning cycles of each seat cover and help maintain the highest standards of in-flight hygiene and safety.
 
The managing director of ASD – the Irish aerospace software developer – Dave Browne is a guest on the programme to explain how RFID works and enhances the safety benefits – and cost savings – to airlines and MRO operations.
 
This, plus all the news highlights from across the region.
