Cabin Air Quality and HEPA filters

While Corona is not an airborne disease, many customers around the world have cited the quality of air within the cabin of an aircraft as a significant source of concern.

FlySafair’s aircraft are equipped with a sophisticated air recycling system that completely renews the cabin air every 2- 3 minutes. This system operates across blocks of seat rows, ensuring all parts of the aircraft receive the same quality of fresh air simultaneously.

This system employs High-Efficiency Particulate Air (HEPA) filters that are identical to those used in operating theatres. These filters successfully remove 99.999% of even the smallest viruses, including those measuring just 0.01 micrometres. The coronavirus family measures between 0.08 and 0.16 micrometres and are therefore extracted by the HEPA filters very effectively. All filters are obviously changed regularly in line with the manufacturer regulations to ensure optimal efficiency.
