Air Quality in Aircraft Cabins: A Study

An important study on air quality issues on airplanes is about to take off!

On March 17, the first ever meeting of the CEN TC 436 Standardization Committee took place at the French Standardization Office for Aeronautics and Space in Paris, France. At this event, IFTS was awarded the President’s Standard Award for studies on Air Quality and Chemical Contamination in Aircraft Cabins.  Currently the CEN TC 436 Committee is developing a standard that will set the regulation for acceptable chemical compound concentration levels in aircrafts.  The study will also discover methods for sampling and testing potential contamination in aircrafts and help enforce air quality standards.  Individuals working within aircraft cabins (ex: pilots, crew members) will be particularly influenced by these findings, as well as Aircraft Manufacturers and Aircrew Unions.
