Provide Added Protection against SARS
Dassault Aviation today announced a new HEPA air filtration option for the Falcon 2000EX Series (EX EASy-DX-LX-LXS and S models) that provides added protection against airborne pathogens, including pandemic viruses like SARS Covid-2.
The hospital-grade filtration systems are already available for the late-model Falcon 7X and 8X. They will also be available for the new Falcon 6X, which will enter service at the end of the year.
“While the current Omicron surge appears to be on the wane, Dassault is committed to offering upgrades that ensure the highest quality of air circulation in the cabins of Falcon aircraft,” said Jean Kayanakis, SVP, Worldwide Falcon Customer Service & Service Center Network.
HEPA (high-efficiency particulate absorbing) filters can capture viruses and bacteria smaller than 0.3 microns. These filters are the standard in applications that require strict contamination control such as hospital isolation units and the pharmaceutical industry. The European Aviation Safety Agency and other aviation regulators recognize that HEPA filters have demonstrated excellent protection against multiple particles, including those the size of the SARS-Covid-2 virus, and recommend that aircraft operators install such filters for cabin air recirculation.
HEPA upgrades are available through the Dassault owned service center network.
