Please assist us in protecting your health. We continue to recommend that you observe spacing and wear mouth-to-nose coverings.
Safe travel on the plane
The risk of contracting the coronavirus during a flight is extremely low. Aircraft are equipped with filters that purify the cabin air.
All recirculation air is filtered and cleaned of impurities such as dust, bacteria and viruses from the cabin air.
This affects about 40 % – the rest is added as fresh air from outside. The degree of separation of these filters corresponds to the standard of filters in a clinical operating theatre.
Therefore, the risk of infection in the aircraft is lower than in other means of transport.
