KIA to get technology that lets surfaces self-sanitise

Bengaluru: The Kempegowda International Airport will soon introduce a nano-coating technology that enables surfaces to self-sanitise. The surface disinfection will reduce the use of chemicals. This is
part of a series of measures to enhance sanitisation at the country’s third busiest airport.
The enhanced hygiene measures include UV-treated trays where a dedicated team manually sanitises them aer every use; UV-treated trolleys with two custom-designed UV tunnels to disinfect trolleys aer every use. The tunnels are located at a cordoned-o area of the terminal.
Ultra Low Volume (ULV) spray treatment for check-in bags, where all outbound passenger bags are
sanitised before dispatch to the aircra is also part of the enhanced measure.
“Sanitisation of high-traic areas and frequently touched surfaces continues to be done every 30 minutes manually without disrupting the flow of passengers. All high-traic areas are sanitised once in three hours by using ULV machines — eight times in 24 hours,” KIA’s operator Bangalore International Airport Limited (BIAL) said.
