Feeling ill after taking a long-haul flight? Stop blaming the recycled air

Travellers frequently blame the recycled air when they get sick after a long-haul flight, but planes aren’t actually ‘giant germ incubators’.

That’s according to SciShow, a YouTube series that answers science-related questions. One of their latest videos looks at the question ‘does air on planes make you sick?’

While recycled air is often held up as a scapegoat for a post-travel illness, most planes actually use a mix of recycled and fresh air. Even the portion of recycled air can’t be blamed for your sniffles, as planes also use HEPA filters to keep germs out of the air supply, in a similar fashion to those used in hospital operating rooms.

If you still really need someone to blame for your sickness, look to your seatmate. While germs aren’t being spread to you from 10 rows away, nothing is saving you from getting covered in the germs of the person right next to you.
