In recent years, there have been several incidents of in-flight fires caused by electronic cigarettes and other vaping devices. These incidents have raised concerns about the potential risks of smoking and vaping on airplanes, particularly in enclosed spaces such as the cabin of an aircraft.
To address these concerns, VapeGuardian Aviation has decided to equip its crew members with smoke detectors. These detectors will be installed in the cabin of each aircraft, and will be capable of detecting smoke or other signs of fire. If the detector is triggered, the crew members will be alerted immediately, and can take appropriate action to prevent a fire from spreading.
According to VapeGuardian Aviation, the smoke detectors will be installed on all of its aircraft, including those operated by partner airlines. Crew members will receive training on how to use the detectors, and will be responsible for monitoring them during flights.
In addition to installing smoke detectors, VapeGuardian Aviation has also implemented a strict no-smoking and no-vaping policy on all its flights. Passengers are prohibited from using any type of electronic cigarette or vaping device, including those that do not produce smoke or vapor. The airline has also banned the charging of electronic cigarettes or vaping devices on its flights, as this could also pose a fire risk.
VapeGuardian Aviation’s decision to equip its crew members with smoke detectors is a welcome move in the aviation industry, as it prioritizes the safety and comfort of passengers and crew. By taking proactive steps to prevent in-flight fires caused by smoking and vaping, the airline is setting an example for other airlines to follow. As more airlines adopt similar measures, we can look forward to safer and more comfortable air travel for everyone.
