Transmission of pandemic (H1N1) 2009 influenza on international flightsAustralia 2009

Background: The emergence of pandemic (H1N1) 2009 influenza (pH1N1) in Mexico and the United States with rapid spread to Europe and the Pacific is testament to the ease of transmission of infectious disease by international flights. Understanding the dynamics of in-flight spread is important for prioritising public health response to pandemic incursions. Therefore a study to investigate the spread of pH1N1 from confirmed cases on flights to Australia was undertaken. The spread of other influenza-like illness (ILI) was also documented.
