Investigation of cabin ventilation strategies impact on aircraft cabin air quality and passengers’ comfort and wellbeing through subject study in realistic aircraft environment

Project description

Investigating cabin air quality effects on passengers

Outdoor air intake and pollutants in aircraft cabins affect the passengers. Thus, improving cabin air quality represents a significant challenge for the aircraft industry. The EU-funded ComAir project will investigate cabin air quality and comfort, as well as the well-being of passengers. The project will review published studies to identify pollutants in aircraft and reproduce the exposures to these pollutants at varied occupation densities in the cabin through simulated flights in a flight test facility low-pressure vessel. The project will apply realistic profiles of cabin pressure, noise and vibrations, temperature and relative humidity. ComAir will also monitor air quality with advanced low-cost sensors, simultaneously observing the passengers’ physiological reactions.
