Dom at HKTravelBlog had the following posted to his Insta-story and I thought it really informative and if you are going to be in the air soon you should definitely read it. It’s published by the IATA here, but I copied and pasted the entire paper you could easily read here.
Some bullet points I found interesting
- Risk of contraction similar to other confined spaces, but planes are equipped with HEPA filters
- HEPA filters used are equivalent to those used in Hospital Operating Rooms and Industrial Cleaning Rooms – they trap microscopic materials
- 99.995% of microbes ( 0.1 to 0.3 microns ) are filtered out
- Air changes 20 to 30 times per hour, typically with a blend of 50% outside air and 50% internal recycled air
