BABC member Boeing and Airbus Both Study Coronavirus Risk on Airplanes, Report Says
The plane manufacturers are working with government authorities and academics to study risks on airplanes and how to mitigate them.
Boeing (NYSE:BA) and Airbus (OTC:EADSY) are partnering with medical experts, engineers, academics, and federal authorities in a research study investigating how the new coronavirus behaves inside airplane cabins, reports The Wall Street Journal.
This builds on earlier efforts by air travel businesses. Airlines already have implemented new measures in an effort to reduce risk and reassure travelers as they attempt to resume operations amid the COVID-19 pandemic. Last week, United Airlines (NASDAQ:UAL) announced a new partnership with disinfectant maker Clorox (NYSE:CLX) and the Cleveland Clinic to develop new practices and procedures to make the entire air travel experience safer.
