The Aerotoxic Association Ltd. The Charity was launched at the Houses of Parliament, London on 18 June 2007 to help other members of the public who had been affected by Aerotoxic Syndrome.
The past year has been dominated by the devastation of the airline industry due to Covid-19, there has been much notable Aerotoxic evidence to report, including:
- Following serious ‘Fume event’ accident flights in 2019 and 2020 which affected the health of passengers – the BBC produced a strong ‘File on Four’ programme on 25 February 2020 which investigated and reported some of the latest Aerotoxic evidence.
- Captain John Hoyte has co authored and published a second book with Amsterdam based Brett Preiss: ‘How Planes Poison You! Aerotoxic Syndrome: Aviation’s Dirtiest Cover-up’.
The title for this book was taken from a latest US legal case which was again settled ‘Out of court’ in 2020.https://eu.usatoday.com/story/travel/airline-news/2020/01/31/boeing-lawsuit-contaminated-air-allegedly-entered-delta-plane/4621223002/
- The Aerotoxic Association was proud to be elected to present the Association and Unions areas for 1.5 million euros of ‘Further Research’ at EASA’s (European Union Aviation Safety Agency) first ever ‘Cabin Air’ workshop in Cologne on 31 January 2020 to EASA, Boeing, Airbus, Rolls Royce, BA, Air France, Lufthansa, KLM, Easyjet etc
It is noted that one of the Union requests was for ‘More research’ into ‘New Protective Equipment’ whilst from 15 June 2020 it is now mandatory to wear ‘Face Mask’ protection on all UK public transport.
- Due to many planes being grounded due to Covid-19, The Germans have recently called for known solutions to be fixed before they fly again – such as poison sensors. At the moment, aircrews’ noses and eyes are only available to test toxic air. It is felt that most passengers and aircrew would demand these available solutions to be urgently brought in after overwhelming evidence has accumulated over 60 years.
- The 13 annual Cabin Air Conference was held at Imperial College London on 17/18 September 2019 and many aircrew attended including Australia Cabin Crew Melissa Dray who presented the following typical Testimony: https://drive.google.com/file/d/0B7q_qvqGfyT9d2VyU2xOdHZ3bFdWTUN6RkxfMFJJanlIMEtR/view & https://vimeo.com/368075125/21b7b66b59
- Meanwhile, a published Dutch study of 2017 estimated that around 1,000,000 frequent flyers in Europe alone have Aerotoxic Syndrome (34,000 in NL and 135,000 in the UK) so this illness remains a hidden public health issue.
Captain John Hoyte commented: ‘Thirteen years is a long time for governments to deny a known cause of public ill health, whilst claiming public health is paramount. But with public attention recently focussed on government scientists and those responsible for public health, it is now long overdue to demand the known and now available solutions and to seriously question the ‘No Positive evidence’ claim, as the whole of aviation faces a changed future’.
