That's according to new research by Boeing, which looked at the risk of transmission for people during air travel. Yes, people who have recovered from COVID-19 can travel safely if they meet the requirements to travel. Because of the high airflow and the efficiency of air filters in airplanes, most viruses, such as COVID-19, don't spread easily on flights.

The use of masks on airplanes has probably also helped reduce the risk of contracting the COVID-19 virus on flights.
