TECMASK travel germ mask on airplane

We've all been there. Sitting on a crowded flight, when the person behind you doesn't stop coughing and you have another six hours to go...

At TECMASK we know how much you love to travel, which is why we want you to protect yourself in style. Planning and enjoying a holiday is one of life's greatest pleasures. Therefore arriving feeling your best inside and out is another matter. 

With this in mind, we think it's important that you know these travel facts...

  • When flying for work or leisure, the humidity levels on aircrafts is approximately 11% (humidity levels in our home usually ranges between 40-60%)
  • Some research suggests that when our bodies experience such a drastic change in humidity levels, this tends to suppress our immune system.
  • As a result, when passengers are sitting in a confined space with a suppressed immune system for long periods of time, we are more susceptible to catching a cold or flu from a travelling neighbour.


Hence why TECMASK stylish travel masks have you covered for germs and pollution, on the plane and on the ground. 

Additionally, according to the Airbus Global Travel Forecast 2017, the statistics show:

  • More passengers are flying (6.3% increase of air traffic since 2016) 3.7 billion passengers were carried by air in 2016 alone
  • World Passenger Load Factor (number of seats filled on a plane) is at an all time high of 80% → meaning aircrafts are quite congested
  • There will be >19,000 planes with >100 seats by 2036 to accommodate air traffic growth
  • Aircrafts will increase number of traffic routes in 2036 to accommodate travel to and from emerging countries.
