How does the filter work?
The filter has been tested in an FDA certified lab and can remove 99.5% of all airborne viruses, bacteria, allergens and particulates from the airstream that flows onto the passenger’s face. The airstream forms an air curtain that forces germs from other passengers and the surrounding cabin away from your face. (Refer to the DEMO section on the this website).
How long will the filter last?
The adhesive gaskets that attach to the filter to the air nozzle will last for about five (5) flights each. The filter comes with two gaskets that will last approximately 10 flights before new ones must be purchased. The filter media is capable of lasting longer than 10 flights regardless of duration.
Where can I get replacement gaskets and filter media?
Replacements can be purchased on the Order Page. Filter replacement packs come with a single replacement filter and two (2) adhesive gaskets good for a total of 10 flights. Cost for a pack is $6.95. Cost per flight breaks down to about $0.70 per flight.
Can the filter be used on all aircraft?
The filter can be used on most aircraft that have air nozzles mounted over the seats. Some wide body jets (like the Boeing 747) are not configured with circular gasper nozzles over each seat. The filter will attach to Airbus, Boeing and other manufacturer’s nozzles with similar geometries to Boeing and Airbus. The filter comes with a centering ring that aligns the housing to smaller nozzles like those found on Boeing planes.
Will the airlines let me use the product?
The manufacturer (Travel Health Products, Inc.) has conducted several hundred test flights on several airlines. Air crews on these flights did not express concern over the use of the filter on the aircraft.
Is the filer approved by the FAA?
The Plane Clean Air filter has been tested in an FAA certified lab and meets the test requirements for FAA certification.
