Air travel today looks vastly different from what it was before. The fear of COVID-19 transmission has significantly reduced the demand for air travel, causing airlines to cut back their flights. We’ve all been adapting to the new normal over the past several months and travel is now slowly coming back.
While traveling by plane during this time may seem scarier than ever before, according to a recent study, the risk of getting infected on the plane is actually quite low. On a full flight, the odds of infection are just 1 in 4,300, and the odds lower to 1 in 7,700 if the airline has adopted the middle seat open policy. Note that current flights are also generally not full due to low demand in travel.
