Germfalcon is the playful name of a sanitizing system created specifically for airplanes. An easy way to disinfect every surface -- including lavatories -- before the flight is boarded, the sanitizing system boast large wings that emit a strong UV-C light to get the job done. This light not only eradicates harmful germs, it does so in a safe way. Working in under 10 minutes, there is no damage or reaction to any cabin materials when completed.

The airplane sanitizing system was created by Mo Kreitenberg and helps ensure people aren't exposed to the common cold, flu or more serious infections, which can linger up to seven days in the cabin. Since airlines constantly battle to gain a competitive advantage, it's only natural they'd want to appeal to people's sense of health and safety.
