“AFA continues to lead the fight for better air quality in our aircraft,” said AFA International President Sara Nelson. “Most Americans go to work with the expectation of breathing clean air, but until we achieve better standards for cabin air quality, Flight Attendants don’t have this guarantee.”
AFA’s efforts to improve the cabin environment span the last three decades. From advocating for smoke free skies to today’s current discussions on air quality, AFA remains steadfast. The union advocates that the airline industry either end the use of engine bleed air for cabin air supply or utilize filters to halt the circulation of contaminated air. Current bleed air systems can introduce potentially toxic engine oil fumes into the cabin.
“Flight Attendants deserve clean air in their workspace, just as travelers deserve clean air when they travel,” said Nelson.
