Unite’s cabin crew members have long-standing concerns about ‘Aerotoxic Syndrome’ – the effects of contaminated air they breathe on planes, and potential health problems. They say that each one of them will encounter a ‘fume event’ – exposure to toxic fumes from the aircraft engines – at some time during their career.
A senior coroner recently issued a warning to the industry urging action to avoid further deaths caused by toxic fumes in cabin air. Now there is a debate in the House of Parliament. On Thursday 16 March 2016 MPs will gather in Westminster Hall to raise the issue of cabin air and aerotoxic syndrome. Make sure your MP is there, email them or Tweet them a message below.
