Over the course of these 100 aircraft exterior cleanings, AISATS has contributed to Vistara’s efforts to reduce CO2 emissions by 1,000 tons and conserve 120,000 liters of water.
This 100th aircraft cleaning milestone demonstrates AISATS’s commitment to providing cutting-edge, technology-driven airport services. It illustrates how this groundbreaking technology is setting a new standard for aircraft exterior cleaning in the Indian aviation sector.
AeroWash leverages advanced robotic technology to deliver precise and efficient exterior cleaning while maintaining the highest safety standards for both the aircraft and equipment operators.
This system reduces water usage during the cleaning process, resulting in decreased aerodynamic drag on aircraft, lower fuel consumption, and reduced CO2 emissions for airlines.
Additionally, it streamlines aircraft ground time, reduces human intervention during the cleaning procedure, and ensures that critical areas of the fuselage, including the crown, elevator, and rudder, receive thorough cleaning, which manual methods might overlook.
Furthermore, the environmentally friendly nature of this technology underscores the idea that the aviation industry can achieve both environmental sustainability and operational efficiency by utilizing the right equipment and eco-conscious alternatives.
