CHARLOTTE, N.C., - Honeywell announced that Dubai National Air Transport Association (dnata) has deployed its groundbreaking ThermoRebellion temperature monitoring solution at John F. Kennedy International Airport in New York to help people return to air travel with confidence. dnata is one of the world's largest air services providers offering ground handling, cargo, travel and flight catering services across five continents around the world.

In partnership with dnata, Honeywell has now installed ThermoRebellion systems at each of the entrances to JFK's International Terminal One to support passengers traveling on major airlines, including Air France, Lufthansa, Korean Air and Japan Airlines.

The Honeywell ThermoRebellion system was designed and tested1 to meet the recommendations set by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) in April 2020 to address the usage of thermal imaging systems during the COVID-19 pandemic. Among other guidelines, the FDA recommends the use of a specialized device known as a "black body," which enables the system to provide two points of reference to deliver the most accurate temperature readings. In addition, the system complies with Section 889 of the 2019 National Defense Authorization Act (NDAA), which prohibits the U.S. government and government contractors from using video and telecommunications equipment required for these types of systems from specific companies and their subsidiaries.
