"Occasional reports of incidents involving food-borne illness associated with international travel are reminders of the importance of ensuring the quality of food and drinking water aboard aircraft, the Guide says. The boldest headlines, however, have been generated by the potential for the transmission through commercial aircraft flights of communicable diseases such as severe acute respiratory syndrome (SARS) and extremely drug-resistant strains of tuberculosis. They have created a renewed interest in an aircraft environment conducive to health, the Guide says.
This edition of the booklet addresses 'water, food, waste disposal, cleaning and disinfection of facilities, [disease] vector control and cargo safety, with the ultimate goal of assisting all types of airport and aircraft operators and all other responsible bodies in achieving high standards of hygiene and sanitation, to protect travelers and crews engaged in air transport.'... Airport and operator management personnel, as well as cabin crewmembers, need to keep an eye out for possible contamination."
