“Each of these categories includes unique functions such as storing and retrieving luggage, using seat trays while eating, using recreational settings, and using the toilet while standing in the aisle,” the study’s authors wrote.
When an aircraft is on the ground, its air supply can come from many places. That air is then mixed and distributed to the cabin. A source from the aircraft’s auxiliary power unit or APU, the aircraft’s engine is in operation. That process uses fuel and causes noise and emissions at the airport. Pre-conditioned air or air supply may come from an airport ground source such as a jet-bridge known as a PCA, meaning that air is not circulating at the regular rate. Researchers say airlines should use air from the APU for improved filtration.
“This is important because at that time, people are increasing their ability to expel infectious aerosols into the room as a result of increasing themselves for a short period of time,” the Harvard study notes.
Researchers also suggest that people carry smaller and smaller bags on board, which will reduce their workload and reduce encounters with other passengers.
In the summer, it was discovered by Michael Schultz, an engineer at the Institute of Logistics and Aviation at the University of Dresden in Germany, and George Butche, a senior expert at the German space agency Deal Aviation. Size and type How long everyone stands in line and the number of close contacts is affected by the carry-ons brought by hand luggage on the plane. They decided that by reducing hand luggage, the number of close contacts would be reduced by two-thirds.
Because people naturally move in rows, the process of traveling is smoother than boarding, so there is not much for passengers to worry about. However, many experts said the jetway would be dangerous if it allowed more people without the appropriate distance. They also said that passengers should stay away from others during the process and that the aircraft’s ventilation systems should be maintained.
“Passengers can improve this expansion process by staying in their seats until ordered to leave by a team member,” Harvard researchers said.
