Latest Data On The Risk Of Catching COVID While Flying – Travel Off Path

For the time being, travelers are faced with the risks of contracting COVID while traveling by plane.

Consequently, we take a look at how risky traveling on an airplane really is.

Research Says Low Risk

Harvard University recently conducted a study on the risk level of contracting COVID while traveling by plane, and found that the ventilation of air on an aircraft has lower exposure to COVID than routine settings such as restaurants and grocery stores.

This is attributed to the fact that modern aircrafts are equipped with exceedingly high quality air filters which are capable of recycling new air every two to three minutes, while removing 99.97% of contaminants.
