These Are the Dirtiest Places on a Plane

Sophie Miura

Pack your hand sanitiser: The most germ-filled part of an aeroplane is just a few inches from your seat. When a team of microbiologists inspected airports and planes, they discovered that tray tables harbour more nasties than a toilet bowl. Yes, the place you eat food from might as well be a trash can. Don’t worry, we’re not saying you shouldn't travel. With the knowledge of which hot spots to avoid and a few tweaks to your mid-flight routine, you can touch down at your destination in good health. Germophobes, this one’s for you.

Catch a flight (not a cold) by packing hand and face wipes to arrive at your destination (somewhat) germ-free.
