Aviation X Lab is a bold and ambitious aviation-specific initiative by five global aviation giants: Emirates Airline, Thales, Collins Aerospace, GE Aviation, and Airbus to disrupt the aviation sector. UAE telecom provider Du is the Lab's Digital Innovation Partner. Their latest 'Aviation X Lab Accelerate' virtual competition - hosted in partnership with AREA 2071 - is seeking COVID-19 related solutions to ensure travelers' wellbeing throughout their journey.


An innovative customer-focused solution that can help travelers throughout their journey to increase health safety precautions and help restore confidence in travel during and after COVID19.

The product shouldn’t be restricted to the journey and would be used by the traveler to enhance safety and hygiene in other public spaces.

The solution should be ready for the market
