Passenger aircraft cabins can be breeding grounds for many pathogens. Every time someone sneezes, millions of micro-organisms are released into the air we breathe. A variety of pollutants, viruses, pollen, bacteria and microscopic dust can contaminate cabin air and trigger irritants to humans such as a runny noise, watery eyes or sneezing.
In this enclosed environment it is vital to maintain aircraft cabin air purity to minimize harmful particles from circulating throughout the cabin and cockpit. A well maintained high-performance HEPA air filtration system is important for the maintenance of a healthy and comfortable atmosphere for passengers and crew.
