In 2020, due to coronavirus, most airports worldwide had been suspended and caused severe economic losses. To prohibit the spread of the coronavirus in airports and revive the airports and airplane company's economic revival, the Sanair is an air sanitizer that also serves as an advertising display panel, designed to be mounted inside the airport jet bridge. The airplane window-shaped design houses an intricate mechanism designed to spray non-toxic, hypochlorous acid, all-natural sanitizing mist in the air. The passengers will experience the inner zero coronavirus space and sanitize their body and luggage through the airbridge equipped with Sanair.
What's the challenge?
Coronavirus Spread
After the spread of the Coronavirus around the world, each country, region was disconnected. The virus can spread through the carrier that uses airplanes in the airport. The virus's factors might be passengers, particles in the air, or the luggage. What is certain is that viruses are spreading to other countries through planes at airports, creating a Pandemic. Even though negative response before the departure, passengers become the positive Coronavirus responsive from the airplane. In the airplane, people have gotten the Coronavirus from the virus hidden in the surface and air.
The Relation with Corona virus and Airplane Industry
To sum up, the pandemic of coronavirus causes the decrease of airplane's decreases and economic loss. The effects become the negative circular effects. The more Coronavirus spread, the more decrease of airplane and airport's usage. Eventually, the virus will destroy all economies and systems. The truth is that if the Corona Virus's spread would decrease, the usage of airplane and airplane industry would increase. To accomplish our purpose, we suggest the sanitizer spray to prevent spread of Coronavirus virus.
Concept Generation
Wall mounted Air Sanitizer +  Display Advertising + Notification of Virus information
How about installing the sanitized air device on the jet bridge wall to prevent potential Coronavirus prevalent? Hanging the device on the jet bridge wall, the airport and airline industry can prohibit the spread of the virus. Furthermore, by installing the LED display advertising on the device, the airport and airplane industry can generate revenue. Also, with notification of Coronavirus information, passenger can recognize the risk of Corona Virus and information of Corona Virus. After all, combination both wall mounted air sanitizer, display advertising and notification of Coronavirus disaster can prevent spread Coronavirus and enhance the economic growth of airport company.

In terms of the design process, the overall design inspiration was influenced by the traditional airplane windows. The reason is that airplane windows are familiar to us, and through airplane windows, we always have a symbolic form of looking at the sky and looking at the new world, so this project takes the form of windows and delivers familiar images to users to experience the sanitizer not experiencing stress or anxiety of spraying.
From the functionality perspective, the bottom part of the product is designed to allow the internal air to be inhaled naturally. The internal composition is placed so that the inhaled air is compressed and directed upward with fine liquid, and the entrance is designed to allow fine compressed liquids to spread well at the top of the product. This means that the airflow is designed from the bottom to the top, and internal functions are arranged. Finally, the LED display that has 16:9 ratio would install in front of device for advertising. Through the function, airport passenger can experience various advertising and covid disaster alarm information.
Shape Exploration
