How is the air onboard being cleaned?

  • All of our aircraft are equipped with High-Efficiency Particulate Air (HEPA) filters, which remove 99.97% of airborne particles—similar to technology found in hospitals.
  • Our aircraft are designed with an air circulation system that mixes in fresh air from outside the plane with air inside the plane.
  • Full exchange of cabin air with fresh, outdoor air and HEPA filtered air every 2-3 minutes.
