Did You Know? On average, Airplane cabin air is completely refreshed 20 times per hour, compared with just 12 times per hour in an office building. On most aircraft, the air is also circulated through hospital-grade HEPA filters, which remove 99.97% of bacteria, as well as the airborne particles that viruses use for transport (many regional jets lack these filters). Additionally, cabins are divided into separate ventilation sections about every seven rows of seats, which means that you share air only with those in your immediate environment and not with the guy who’s coughing up a lung ten rows back. When the plane is on the ground, however, air circulation in the cabin can be greatly reduced. The most common way to pick up a bug when flying is from contaminated surfaces; tray tables, lavatory doors, and latches on overhead bins that are loaded with viruses and bacteria. (NBC NEWS)
