Airports and aircrafts are undoubtedly the hotbeds of germs; probably some of the most contaminated places on earth. So when you take off in the seemingly clean aircraft, have you ever wondered how clean is the air that you are breathing in the plane?
Well, a new survey has come out to discern which plane has the cleanest air and no surprises here at all - Japan's ANA All Nippon Airways was named the cleanest airline in the world. Close on its heels are Taiwan's EVA Air and South Korea's Asiana Airlines in a top 30 list dominated by Asian companies. The survey was conducted by UK-based aviation industry reviewer Skytrax.
Singapore Airlines, Japan Airlines, Cathay Pacific Airways, Qatar Airways, Swiss International Air Lines, Hainan Airlines and Lufthansa make up the rest of the top 10.
The others in the list - Korean Air (South Korea), Cathay Dragon (Hong Kong), Austian Airlines (Austria), China Airlines (Taiwan), Thai Airways (Thailand), Garuda Indonesia (Indonesia), China Southern Airlines (China), Bangkok Airways (Thailand), Emirates (United Arab Emirates) and at 20th place, Air New Zealand (New Zealand).
Nope, not a single carrier from India. Well, we do not have clean air and water even on the ground, can we do much when it comes to aircraft then?
