Allegiant Air has issued this report on its aircraft air quality:
We are setting a new standard for air purity. The air quality on our planes exceeds HEPA standards thanks to our VOC (volatile organic compound) filters, which remove even smaller contaminants.
On average, cabin air is changed every three minutes through a continuous flow of fresh and VOC-filtered air. Air enters the cabins through vents near the ceiling and flows downward, exiting through vents near the floor. Air doesn’t flow toward the front or the back of the plane. This flow ensures the air is fresh and sanitary.
“Together We Fly” is more than a phrase, it’s our promise to you. That’s why we are taking important steps to protect the health and safety of you, your loved ones and our team members.
We work closely with the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), World Health Organization (WHO) and other authorities and experts. Based on their direction, we ensure our actions not only follow current guidance, but exceed the recommended standards so you can fly with confidence.
