Avidbots Neo cleaning robot used by many of the newly named best global airports

Kitchener, Ontario, July 12, 2022Avidbots, a leading Canadian-based robotics company, is proud to highlight the contribution of its autonomous floor scrubber, Neo, to top winners of the 2022 World Airport Awards.

The winners were recently announced in Paris by Skytrax, an aviation rating firm. Reviewing more than 500 airports globally, the annual survey evaluates a variety of traveler-specific topics, ranging from terminal comfort, cleanliness and hygiene to check-in, staff friendliness, taxi availability and much more.

For the second consecutive year, Avidbots Neo supports custodial teams within the world’s best and cleanest airports.

Seven of the world’s top 10 airports, including two of the top three, have deployed Neo, the autonomous floor scrubbing robot.



Additionally, the top two cleanest airports use Avidbots’ autonomous cleaning solution to optimize, streamline and improve their floor care operations.

Neo’s contributions were also present in numerous regional categories, including:

  • Six of Asia’s top 10 cleanest airports, including the top three (Tokyo Haneda, Singapore Changi, Tokyo Narita, Seoul Incheon, Kansai, Hong Kong)
  • Europe’s number one and number three cleanest airports (Zurich, Paris Charles de Gaulle)
  • North America’s third and fifth cleanest airports (Cincinnati/Northern Kentucky, Montreal)

“We are thrilled Neo is prominently featured supporting the cleaning efforts of the best airports around the globe,” said Jeff Schrantz, Vice President of Global Sales and Marketing at Avidbots. “Airports see the value of our autonomous floor-scrubbing robots, which deliver an efficient and measurable clean every time. Its use by the top airports on this list is a testament to the benefits Neo can unlock for the industry.”

Avidbots has been revolutionizing the robotic cleaning market since its founding in 2014, recently launching the Disinfection Add-On. The sprayer add-on expands the functionality of Neo, offering customers the ability to autonomously disinfect high-touch, 3-D surfaces.

Powered by Avidbots Autonomy, Neo understands its operating environment and takes action to maximize cleaning productivity while minimizing human intervention. Avidbots Command Center provides detailed reporting and performance measurement for monitoring, managing and tracking Neo remotely and in real-time.

Today, Neos are being used throughout the world in various high-traffic, dynamic environments including airports and transit hubs, along with manufacturing, warehousing, healthcare, education and retail.
