Jet Aviation recently installed its first cutting-edge in-flight dishwasher (ADW 600) that was developed in-house at its Basel facility to support all aircraft types. The ADW 600 was successfully installed in Basel on a VVIP Airbus 330-200ER.

The Aviation DishWasher (ADW 600) was installed by Jet Aviation on a VVIP Airbus 330-200ER and certified through the EASA PART-21 DOA minor modification approval process.

Unlike traditional industrial dishwashers that tend to have a short wash cycle but use corrosive chemicals, Jet Aviation’s state-of-the-art ADW dishwasher boasts a 3-minute wash cycle — and is compatible with a gentle, eco-friendly soap suitable for both silver and aluminum. It also significantly reduces the number of dishes required on board, provides additional storage space and can even be used to heat up dishes before serving meals.

“We are currently finalizing development of the ADW 450, a lighter 450 mm-wide model, which will fit all mid- and super mid-size business jets,” says Johannes Turzer, senior vice president and general manager of Jet Aviation’s Maintenance Center in Basel. “We developed the ADW in direct response to customer feedback and are very pleased to offer its design and technology improvements.”

The ADW can be installed during scheduled maintenance or combined with other refurbishments, modifications or upgrades at Jet Aviation’s MRO facility in Basel.
