CATCHING INFLUENZA ON THE PLANE

Author: DanPoynter  |  Category: Travel Tips

A new study of influenza and air travel shows that passengers seated in the two rows either in front of or behind someone with the flu are at greatly increased risk of getting the flu themselves ―almost half as likely to become infected as the people who are seated next to the sick passenger.

Exposure increase with the length of the flight.

A major problem is infected passengers who do not show signs of flu when boarding the plane.
