Fighting the Spread of Disease Among Airline Passengers

| From

ENCINO, CA (SEND2PRESS NEWSWIRE) -- International travel is often cited as a major factor in the global spread of disease. Contracting an illness while aboard an airplane can be a serious matter. From the annoying common cold to more serious SARS infections, air travelers are exposed to more germs and disease than ever before. A fast growing company in Southern California has recently produced a product which could allay many of these fears. Aero-San Corporation ( has designed and manufactures convenient and affordable airline seat cover and head rest packages under the name of Traveller's Edge(TM).

High-traffic surfaces harbor germs that can make you sick. The new Traveller's Edge line of personal health and hygiene products is designed to put a barrier between the traveler and everybody else that has used the seat. Traveller's Edge Airline Seat Covers and Head Rest Covers help keep away the grime you can see - and the stuff you can't.

The Traveller's Edge(TM) line includes:

* Airline Seat Covers

* Headrest Covers

* Personal Health Masks (4 to a pack)

* Individual Antiseptic Towelettes (6 to a pack)

* Personal Travel Blankets (oversized) with a drawstring net bag

* Personal Travel Pillows with a drawstring net carry bag

Aero-San Airline Seat Covers and Headrest Covers are made from the same material used in surgical gowns to protect medical personnel. Each Aero-San Cover is packaged with 2 individual antiseptic towelettes for use on the tray table and arm rests. The covers are reusable, washable, and recyclable.

As the airlines literally fight for economic survival, cost cutting has become a way of life for the industry. Carriers have reduced fleet sizes; passenger loading on aircraft is increasing, resulting in more crowded aircraft and exposing travelers to more and more potential health hazards. Ground crews are doing the best they can under the pressure to 'turnaround' aircraft as quickly as possible.

As one CEO of a major airline said, "...planes on the ground don't make any money." The traveling public is at the mercy of understaffed air carriers and overcrowded aircraft.

Traveller's Edge products by Aero-San Corporation have been designed by travelers for travelers. We asked business people what they wanted to help protect their health while on the road or in the air," states Lance Paris, CEO of Aero-San Corporation. "They all wanted a convenient way to keep their environment clean. We designed an easy-to-use product that gives them a barrier from the grime and a way to clean the surfaces around them."
