Improving biosecurity measures in the air transport industry

How modeling can support the implementation of biosecurity measures at any step of the passenger experience?

Today’s air transport is strongly challenged by economic, environmental and health disruptions. According to the International Air Transport Association (IATA), the full-year passenger demand (domestic and international) is expected to be down 48% compared to 2019. The air transport industry is also challenged by the loss of passenger confidence at times of pandemic. In a recent survey from IATA, 40% of recent travelers plan to wait at least six months after the virus is contained before they will fly again.

Air transport, which is essential for trade, business and tourism, is constraint to explore innovative solutions to deploy biosecurity measures.
The European Organization for the Safety of Air Navigation, EUROCONTROL, has underlined the importance of adopting coordinated measures to operational procedures and lifting of national restrictions during recovery period. This is a major condition of both airlines and airports to support the air transport recovery.

We are supporting you resuming your operations

By leveraging its experience in fighting the pandemic with hospitals, Dassault Systèmes is committed to help air transport to resume safe operations as soon as possible.

Combating health disruption with technology to resume social and economic operations is now possible. Strong from its successful experience with China’s Central-South Architectural Design Institute (CSADI) at Wuhan Hospital, Dassault Systèmes is able to support the simulation and evaluation of virus dispersal in a confined environment. By using the 3DEXPERIENCE® platform on the cloud, CSADI has the ability to simulate virus contamination and diffusion within the hospital’s ventilation system and to counteract the negative effects from unplanned ventilation risks.

By taking a similar approach for airlines, you will be able to:

  • Increase the passenger confidence
  • Redesign and test safety procedures
  • Simulate airflow and virus diffusion patterns within a plane cabin environment
  • Effectively communicate to all stakeholders with high rendering videos

By taking a similar approach for airports, you will be able to:

  • Demonstrate a safe environment for your workforce and passengers
  • Optimize passenger flow
  • Test the effectivity of your safety measures and procedures
  • Minimize disruption in implementing business recovery and optimize your resources

We are committed to human life

At Dassault Systèmes, we deeply care about the human life. Developing innovative solutions to solve health and safety challenges for our customers is an imperative.
Beyond cabin disinfection between each flight, it is more than ever critical to optimize airflow dispersal for preventing any virus from spreading.
Airports will also have to reconsider the way they safely manage passenger flow and optimize their operations at times of pandemic.
