Abstract

ABSTRACTIn order to improve the passengers and crew comfort during the flight, the aimof the present paper is a study of the cabin air quality through experimentalmeasures on randomly selected flight segments of an Italian airline company,WindJet.Carbon dioxide, ultrafine particles, temperature and relative humidity have beenmeasured by using low cost high efficiency instrumental equipments.Exploring ways to improve aircraft cabin air quality, WindJet and University ofPalermo are investigating equipment, filters and components of the ventilationsystem.In this paper, after description of both ventilation systems for aircrafts ofWindJet and the instrumental equipments used to measure environmentalcharacteristics on board, obtained results are shown.
