Every day, many millions of people board an aircraft, which has become a normal way of transportation in every day life. But what they do not know is that this flight could land them in a hospital or with debilitating illness because of exposure to toxic cabin air!

It often begins with flu like symptoms: limb pain, dizziness, fatigue and nausea. Long-term damage to the nerves, the lungs, the cardiovascular system or cognitive impairment may follow.

How do I know this? Because I am one of a growing number of people that has been affected.  I had to end my flying career in 2016 following 2 onboard fume events within 1 year 2014/15 and the cumulative effects of 20+ years flying. My health had deteriorated badly and tests showed that chemicals used in aircraft engine oil were present in my body. My GP advised me to stop flying.

You as a passenger, but also pilots and flight attendants are at great risk to be exposed to neurotoxic breathing air on any flight in most aircraft! The World Health Organization recently published a new study about aircraft cabin air quality and the illness related to being exposed to the toxic fumes: "AEROTOXIC SYNDROME: A NEW OCCUPATIONAL DISEASE?" which shows a definite connection between in-flight toxic fumes and health damage.

Over many decades new victims have been added every day; it is now time to address the political leaders directly. The poisoning of human beings on flights cannot be tolerated any longer. This issue has been denied by the UK Government and airlines for too long.

On 17th September 2017 EasyJet announced they will be fitting filters to their aircraft - Due to "health concerns".

Politicians are no longer allowed to look in the other direction. Airline regulations must be implemented: aircraft must be fitted with SENSORS AND FILTERS and airlines must be placed under obligation to inform the public!
