PriestmanGoode may have a solution to hygienic air travel

Posted by Kyro Mitchell on 3 August 2020

Companies around the world have been trying to come up with a viable solution to safe and hygienic air travel ever since the coronavirus was officially declared as a pandemic. Now, a UK design consultancy called PriestmanGoode has thrown their hat into the ring with a potential solution to the issue of hygienic air travel.

PriestmanGoode have designed an airplane concept seat and room which they have dubbed ‘Pure Skies Rooms‘. The new rooms promise to improve on three main aspects which include personal space, hygiene, and touch-free journeys, three factors airlines around the world are desperate to provide.

Pure Skies Room concept design

Pure Skies Rooms are fully enclosed areas with a floor to ceiling curtain that separates the passenger from the rest of the cabin. Every Pure Skies Room also features a personal wardrobe and overhead storage area, according to Simple Flying. The seats in the Pure Skies Rooms have also been design with minimal split lines and seam-welded fabrics to eliminate areas where dirt and grime can gather. In terms of the fabric used in the rooms, all surfaces in the room are all antimicrobial, which makes cleaning and disinfection quicker, easier and more effective.

According to PriestmanGoode, the seats use a combination of UVC light, heat, photochromic and thermochromic inks in the materials and finishes to sanitise the passengers surroundings.

‘As the heat from cleaning reacts with the inks, a message of reassurance appears on seats, helping alleviate passenger anxiety about hygiene during boarding,’ The company wrote on its website.

‘We’ve looked ahead to imagine future scenarios and taken into account new passenger behaviours driven by the global pandemic to ensure our designs can be implemented within a few years and will meet user and airline requirements for many years ahead,’ said PriestmanGoode Director Nigel Goode.

Take a look at the concept designs below:
