Story: How Risky is Flying?
There have been a number of warnings from health officials in recent weeks, about COVID-19 exposure on domestic and international flights and I've been fielding many questions about whether it's really safe to fly. Fortunately, there are multiple measures and design features in place on commercial flights that reduce the risk of transmission on planes, but it really comes down to everyone respecting the rules and maintaining proper hygiene in order to prevent outbreaks on aircraft.
Aside from the additional deep cleaning protocols most airlines have enacted, consider the existing features of an airplane cabin. Passengers are all facing forward, there's minimal face to face contact, plus the seat-backs act as a natural barrier. If boarding is properly staggered and everyone remains seated in their respective rows, minimizing their movement around the cabin, there's limited interaction between passengers.
When it comes to air circulation and ventilation, there's a misconception that the air on planes is stale or that germs are easily spread around the cabin. In fact, the air on planes is constantly being turned over - on average 15 to 20 times an hour or every three minutes - a rate much higher than most enclosed shared spaces like offices, shops, and restaurants.
As the air is exchanged - outside air is drawn in, the old air is pushed out and it goes through HEPA (high-efficiency particulate air) filters, capable of trapping bacteria and viruses, like the novel coronavirus. When this filtered air comes out of the vents into the cabin, it's forced down towards the floor and this controlled air flow limits the distance aerosols can travel throughout the cabin.
Airlines have also changed many of their procedures to reduce the interaction between passengers and also between passengers and crew. That includes stricter boarding, so passengers spend less time standing in the aisles, hovering over people who are already seated. Plus many airlines are curtailing their in-flight refreshment offerings, so crew members spend less time moving through the cabin.
But all these safeguards are not foolproof; the key to safe travel is largely dependent upon passenger behaviour. That means avoiding all travel if you don't feel well - or if you've been around someone who has been sick; being patient and keeping proper physical distance in the airport, at the gate and while boarding; avoiding touching high contact surfaces; washing your hands and using hand sanitizer and most importantly wearing a mask.
If you choose to fly, you cannot expect everyone on board to be perfect, so be conscientious about your own behaviour and do what you can to protect yourself and the people around you.
