In spring 2015, the European Aviation Safety Agency (EASA) launched a preliminary in-flight cabin air measurement campaign, which will develop a methodology, and put into place adequate equipment to perform cockpit and cabin air measurements.

The results of this campaign, which will be used to prepare for an envisaged large scale project in the future, were published on 23 March 2017. The results show that the cabin/cockpit air quality is similar or better than what is observed in normal indoor environments. No occupational exposure limits and guidelines were exceeded.
