Maintaining hygiene aboard a plane is crucial for ensuring the comfort and well-being of passengers. Airlines diligently sanitize cabins between flights, focusing on high-touch surfaces like tray tables, armrests, and lavatories.

According to former flight attendant Jay Robert, who has worked in the vaiation industry for twenty years, the later the flight, the filthier the aircraft.

He told the Daily Mail, "Throughout the day, there’s only time to perform light spot cleaning, with some airlines relying on cabin crew to maintain cabin presentability until the plane reaches its final destination for the night stop, during which the aircraft is more thoroughly cleaned in preparation for the flight out the following morning."

5 hygiene tips you must follow after boarding a flight

Next time you board a flight, do a hygiene check. Flight attendant Jay Robert points out that planes are the filthiest after a trip and are not cleaned thoroughly due to time constraint. It is recommended to sanitise the seat, tray table, arm rests and seat belts. It is also advised to sanitise your carry-on bag or anything that you keep on the ground of a plane. The filthiest place on a plane is the back pocket of a seat as passengers dump used tissues, eaten apples or chewing gum in it.

Hygiene steps taken by airlines

Airlines provide hygiene kits containing essentials like masks, hand sanitizers, and disinfectant wipes to passengers, further promoting a clean and safe environment. Additionally, advanced air filtration systems continuously circulate and purify cabin air, minimizing the risk of airborne contaminants. By adhering to these hygiene protocols and collectively prioritizing cleanliness, passengers can enjoy a comfortable and worry-free travel experience.
