Feeling the Cabin Pressure?

Working conditions, Health & Safety among European Cabin Crew



Information about participation in the survey Feeling the Cabin Pressure - a European-wide survey by The Karolinska Institute on cabin crew health, working conditions and safety during ramp-up after the Covid-19 pandemic.


We hereby invite you to participate in an international survey that is a part of a research project carried out by Karolinska Institutet in Sweden called ‘Sustainable flight safety- Developing instruments for identifying key risk factors, and models for interventions that enable proactive and sustainable flight safety work.’ The aim of the survey is to collect data on European cabin crews’ employment and working conditions, health and experiences regarding flight safety in the ramp-up following the Covid-19 pandemic. Your answer is very important to gain knowledge of what cabin crews' working conditions look like today, and how the work environment and aviation safety can be concretely improved.


The questionnaire consists of 140 questions and the completion time is approximately 20–40 minutes. You do not have to answer the entire questionnaire at once. Click on “Resume later” in the top right corner, select a username and a password, and you may finish the survey at a later occasion.


In this confidential survey, you will be presented with questions about yourself, your work as cabin crew, and your health. Your participation is solicited, yet voluntary. If you agree to participate, please be aware that you are free to withdraw at any point throughout the study. You have the right to ask that any data you have supplied to that point be withdrawn/destroyed, and to omit or refuse to answer any question that is asked of you. If you have any questions, please contact the Personal Data Controller Dr. Marika Melin, using the contact information below. The research project has undergone ethical review and was approved by the Regional Ethics Review Board in Stockholm (dnr 2020-04055 and 2022-01660-02).


All your data will be processed in compliance with The General Data Protection Regulation Regulation (EU 2016/679). The company Enkätfabriken, which was hired to conduct the survey, guarantees that your answers will be treated with full confidentiality. This means that the results will be presented on group level so that individual answers never can be identified. Outsiders, such as employers, trade union representatives, authorities, or journalists, are not given access to individual answers - or knowledge of your participation in the study.

The Personal Data Controller in the project is project leader Marika Melin (marika.melin@ki.se).
