Aircraft Air Quality Industry Day

Wednesday 18th April 2018

Aircraft Air Quality is fast becoming a topic of great interest for airlines around the world as carriers seek to make gains in operational efficiency while providing the best possible cabin environment for their passengers and crew.

Time spent searching for the cause of an errant smell leads to operational impacts such as a 1-2 hour day delay and may even end in the removal of an entire engine.  The root cause of the smell is, often, never identified. The immediate cost of a delay, cancellation, or diversion is in the tens of thousands of dollars and leaves passengers and crew frustrated. Additionally, the EU261 regulation drives additional costs for European carriers. Airlines have tasked their procurement specialists, engineers, and technicians with exploring ways to mitigate the cost associated with these incidents and are looking for the best solutions and procedures that can drive significant operational and maintenance improvements.


The Pall Aerospace Aircraft Air Quality Industry Day is an opportunity for proactive airlines to share best practice and review the range of products currently available and in development that can help operators reach their desired operational, maintenance, and overall cost efficiency levels.




Engineers, Procurement Specialists, and Airline Management tasked with maximizing Cabin Air Quality, minimizing associated costs, and responsible for driving efficiency across operations.
